"Wealth consists not in having great possessions, but in having few wants."
We have a universal desire to live the good life, but culture has distorted what the good life is.
Intertwining our self-worth with our net worth and counting each day as a chance to hustle harder, getting closer and closer to realizing a temporal victory; we strive to achieve a life of luxury from a tirelessly appropriated Slim Aarons photograph.
But often (almost daily), we need a friendly reminder that the good life has little to do with material wealth. Living a good life means valuing the pursuit of truth (let alone acknowledging the existence of truth). Living a 'good life' means pouring time and effort into meaningful and mutually empowering relationships. Material success can complement the good life, but we should never mistake it for pursuing what truly matters.
This month, we invite you to leave those empty gilded pursuits and consider topics that spur a desire for something better.
~Slow down, think well, and enjoy The Good Life.
