Everyone lives 2 lives. The second starts after realizing that there’s only one.
There’s a limit to how much you can cut by being frugal. But there’s no limit to how much you can earn. For example, if you earn $50k/year, the maximum you can save is ..$50k. But if you focus on income generation, then Sky is the limit.
It’s healthy to be frugal sometimes. I like having little places in my life where I intentionally impose scarcity. It’s important not to buy everything you’re capable of.
