"Oh, what a void there is in things" a P.S.A.
Last week as I was waiting for my mammogram, I read an interview in some women's magazine...I don't even remember which one.....
But the article was an interview with a family of 3 who "manages to somehow live off a meager annual income of $60,000".
As I was reading their tips & advice and about all of the things they have had to sacrifice (manicures, gym memberships, take-out sushi lunches, vacations) I thought to myself:
What a bunch of jerks.
Since when is $60,000 a year for a family of 3 anywhere near poverty level?
It makes me feel a bit misanthropic to picture people crying over not being able to get a mani/pedi.
If these are your problems, you've got it made and should probably try to spend your time focusing on all the amazing thing you do have, and let go of everything you don't.
I'm pretty sure nobody ever laid on their death-bed lamenting over the absence of an iPhone in their life.
