Life has been super busy lately and I’ve also been tired. When I’m exhausted, I lose what little creativity I have. I tried to write something for today, but my heart wasn’t in it. So today, I give you a Greatest Hits post. Wait, don’t click away!
I agree that whenever an artist puts out a greatest hits album, it’s a lazy money grab. Bah! I don’t want to completely sell out, so, I added some embellishment. Today, I present you with my favorite posts, but I also added backstory.
My Philosophy on Money
When I started this blog, I was running away from a bad situation. My resolution was to run towards a big pile of money. And that’s it. How vapid. How shallow.
What I have since realized is that money is just a facilitator. A big pile of cash doesn’t lead to happiness. In some cases, it leads to ruin.
While my journey started out as a superficial experiment to accumulate a certain amount of money and quit my job, I soon realized that a million dollars wasn’t the real goal at all. My Philosophy on Money has completely changed…
I am far from perfectly adjusted. Sometimes, I talk all high and mighty, but I still have stupid desires. Like a high-school boy, I still drool a little when I see certain cars. Hello Acura NSX!
Realizing and accepting your level of Enough is powerful. I know that I have Enough now, but I still can’t quite quash the silly desires. I haven’t succumbed to them either though.
I received a nasty email a while ago from some dude telling me that my life would end in disaster if I dared follow the 4% Rule. I disagreed, so I wrote a post about it. There have been no fewer than a zillion posts about the 4% Rule, but how many include Komodo Dragons, sexually transmitted diseases and the awful rock band KISS? Only here at 1500 Days baby.
When I first discovered the Frugalwoods, they had a tiny audience. This was the first post I read from them and it has less than ten comments. However the post was great and so were the pictures. I knew that they were going to be huge someday. And now they are.
I’ve been thrilled to work with the Frugalwoods on more than one occasion. While writing a post for them, I came up with the idea of Frugalwoodstock. I have no idea if there will ever actually be a Frugalwoodstock, but if there is, I’ll be first in line to buy a ticket.
See you soon?
Writing is tricky business. On a very good day, I can come with five post ideas in twenty minutes. Other days; nothing. Other weeks; nothing.
There is one thing that I know deep down and it is this; I’ll never force it. I could, but what fun is that? Not for me or for you.
I’m sure this will pass. That’s all for now though.
