‘I know everybody has a struggle…but how much weight do you put into those struggles? I confess I don’t really struggle financially because I tend to live underneath my means. I think a lot of people see their salary as their target lifestyle. So, if you make $80,000 a year, you’re going to divide it into whatever you want to buy…you believe you should buy the equivalent car or meals or clothes that $80,000 can afford you. I say take that idea and cut it and live off of less. So, if you make $80,000 a year, live like you only make $60,000 or $50,000. You might not feed a family of five on it but if we can be smarter and somehow live underneath our means, struggles tend to be less. And yes, there are also artistic and mental struggles. I still say it’s all about how much weight we put into our struggles. If I think I’m not being fulfilled in hobbies or artistically, I remind myself that they’re something I should enjoy and if, at the moment, I’m not enjoying myself, it’s time to put it away for a while and take it up later.
