As part of the journey toward self-sufficiency, we continue to evaluate life not only in terms of the here and now, but also in terms of tomorrow and beyond. After all, the goal is to be independent of entitlements, of government intervention and of course, the influences of the PTB.
This is not an easy task.
And so we look beyond our own sphere of influence and reality, in search of others who may have done it better. Others who have achieved that which we strive for. Others who appear to have it all. But appearances can be deceiving. For every person we perceive as having it all, there is another looking to us with their own eyes, perhaps envious because “we” have it all.
