I loved Adam Baker’s Ted Talk regarding consumerism and the “stuff” in our lives that’s weighing us all down. To anyone that is downsizing, I think this video can be a catalyst to propel us to unload the useless items that can be detrimental to our happiness. He urges us to, “Start collecting experiences and not things.”
So what does freedom mean to you?
There are thousands and thousands of people out there leading lives of quiet, screaming desperation, where they work long, hard hours at jobs they hate to enable them to buy things they don’t need to impress people they don’t like.”
