You all see the highlight reels on social media:
That new car they just bought.
The fun family trip they just went on.
Those amazing family pictures they just took.
The new, huge house they just bought.
Those new matching clothes they always seem to have.
I refuse to let someone else’s social media presence persuade me into believing that I should be living life differently than I am.
I know we’re on the right path. I know new cars and huge houses don’t necessarily mean success. Now, when I see them, I think of the higher taxes and insurance costs. I realize that living within OUR means and being content with what we have is sexy to my husband.
We live a simple, lovely life. Our kids are happy, curious, and charming. Our marriage is as strong as ever. I love our life.
You don’t need more. You don’t need to live larger than life or beyond your means.
Let’s get back to the basics together and live what matters.
