mnmlist: things I do have instead

After I wrote my last post, things I don’t have that many do, someone asked, “What do you have that most people don’t?”

It was a good question. I cut out a lot of what I found to be unnecessary (for me) to make room for what I find to be more important.

So what do I have instead? Honestly, what I have isn’t that uncommon, but here goes:

  • leisure time
  • space in my home
  • time to read, meditate, exercise
  • time to write every day
  • time for my beautiful family
  • time for close friends
  • time to walk places (instead of drive)
  • freedom from car maintenance, car breakdowns, traffic
  • time to cook simple, healthy meals
  • the luxury of not worrying what time it is most of the time
  • disconnectedness when I’m away from home
  • fewer distractions even when I’m connected
  • my health
  • less worry
  • a very light packing list
  • worry-free finances
  • a business I’m proud of
  • wonderful readers
