There are some things one has to sacrifice in order to have something else. Like a pleasureable holiday in the snow in order to continue to save money for bills and for an ultimate goal. But some people assume you are boring. Or that you are not making the most of this time of your life (your twenties). Or that you are possibly being antisocial.
But what do they know now? It’s hard to imagine what it is like when you don’t have all the responsibilities or bills but get the same amount of pay (or more) as I do. It is a lot easier then to spend it on holidays and travelling.
I am happy though. Happy to sacrifice something pleasureable in the present moment for something a lot more pleasureable later. Something that will hopefully not be a one-off pleasureable thing. And if I want a holiday, I’m happy to go away for a cheap weekend somewhere. Or even curl up at home with a book.
And one doesn’t always need to have something right away. Waiting for something and then getting it can make it a whole lot more pleasureable.
Until next time,
