We’re All Trading Our Lives for Something. Trade Up. | Becoming Minimalist
A fellow reader comments: “This is a great perspective on the “costs” of a consumer driven lifestyle. The progression is very subtle though….sort of like the frog in a pan of cool water. If a frog was put in boiling water it would jump right out. But because it is first put in cool water that is “slowly” heated it doesn’t realize it is being boiled just the same. So too with most of our pursuit of first security, comfort, luxury and then victory.”
Right on! DOWN(sizing) IS (trading) UP!
