We have dealt with a lot of loss over the past few months and it's hard. Final goodbyes never get easier. Though the pain and suffering ends for the one that has passed, it has only begun for those left behind.
Despite our grief, life goes on and so must we. Time may heal our wounds but invisible scars are left behind.
In the midst of sorrow, I've given much thought to what matters most in this life of mine and the changes I want to make.
What matters is most is the relationships I build with my family and friends. I want them to know that we love and care for them, without a doubt. I don't want to look back with any regrets.
Money and acquiring more things are not important to me. Thus, the reason I have been ruthlessly simplifying my life and am actively striving to become debt-free.
The simpler my life, the more time and money I have for the things that matter most...the simple joys of life and spending time with those I love and care for.
