Sunday Sharing Vol: 30
Each Sunday we post interesting articles, videos, podcast episodes, and more that we’ve consumed from across the web. We’ll give our thoughts on what we’ve learned through others in Sunday Sharing.
What We’re Reading
Articles / Blog Posts
It finally struck me on a drive home. It’s the number. The number that’s lingered in the back of my psyche for these past several years like a whisper you can’t quite hear. (I didn’t try to hear it, naturally, I’m really good at blocking out subtle noises to concentrate.)
Mom got sick when she was in her 40s. She had several chronic problems, including dementia which is incredibly hard to handle on every level. We struggled to get diagnoses and/or treatment but nothing was terminal. (Feels familiar.) Then at 55, she died of sudden cardiac arrest.
55 means death, not a reasonably early retirement.
I consider myself a progressive minimalist: someone who adheres to a minimalist lifestyle as a strategy to improve the quality of life of both myself and the larger community. From the various responses I receive from this blog, my former podcast, and the other sites that my writing lives on, I believe there are others that share my mindset.
Progressive minimalists focus on maximizing human well-being within our ecological means through sharing work, consuming less, and spending more time in nature, with our community, and pursuing experiences we find meaningful. Less is not simply more; less is ecologically and financially sustainable.
Articles We Posted
There are many areas in personal finance that we agree upon. However, there are other areas where we disagree. That’s why it’s called personal finance because it’s personal to your situation.
I asked 29 Personal Finance Bloggers what their unpopular opinion regarding finances was.
What’s your unpopular opinion regarding personal finance?
What advice do you have for others in living a better life?
Set big goals, work hard to achieve them, and learn from your mistakes.
Everyone has a different path they must tread in life, and, life deals us different hands. In the grand scheme of things, do your very best, be your very best self, and be kind to others.
Financial independence is great, but you don’t want to get there by leaving a trail of chaos and brokenness in your wake. At the end of the day, you want to have lived a good life!
