      Love it. (But so sad for mushroom woman! Has she made a return yet?)

      I’d rather right-size my work so it supports a life where I still have time to read books for hours straight, hang out with my pets, publish indie motorcycle magazines, and go hiking on a weekday afternoon just because

      Work-life balance is so important. We work so we'd live comfortably. We just have to always remind ourselves of that so we don't cross into the toxic workaholic side of us and actually forget that working is just a means to an end, not the main thing to live for.

      Bigger is not always better, but it sure as heck is always bigger. More is more! More effort, more time, more effort…more risk.

      Nicely put, Alexa!

      I’m with Mr. Money Mustache who teaches that when you really get down to it, your freedom and time to do what you want is far more valuable than all the widgets and shiny new cars of the world.
