What if we had everything we already need? We can give value to things that already exists and instantly feel richer.
Say you don’t own a car so you have to take the train or bus to work. Outsourcing the driving frees up your time to do something else like plan your week, catch up on the news, or get some more sleep. Time is extra money earned.
Owning a car can be a burden. And while it makes grocery shopping and running errands on the weekends, we can appreciate the benefits of an automobile’s absence during the week.
Just as constriction begets creativity, we can find value in our limitations to find our own happiness. It’s all the complaining that drags us down.
