I watched No Impact Man, the story of one family who lived for a year without creating a carbon foot print — in New York City. They drastically altered their living habits. Riding bikes instead of driving, living with no electricity, walking up nine flights to their condo – some pretty serious changes. Yet they both kept the jobs they had and still lived in New York City.
I lived in Chicago for many years, and I know how expensive it is to live in a large city. Rent alone can kill you. Then there’s the more expensive cost of food compared to rural Iowa. Things like parking, transportation, and cost of living — all higher than where I am now.
This past year I made some drastic changes, and now live on much less money than I ever have. Yet – it’s been a wonderful year with fantastic friends and travel and much learning.
I’m now at a point in my life where I want to do some amazing things. I’ve seen that I can do it. Money is nice, but it’s not everything. Whoever said do what you love, the money will follow — is right. Now, what do I want to do?
You know me – what do you think I’d love doing and be good at? Can’t wait to see your responses!
