But what about those other things that you really want to do and are far from free?
things you know will give you great satisfaction for years to come; things that you love with every bit of your heart and soul, every inch of your being.
I'm not talking about necessary things that you need. I'm talking about luxuries.
But is it really a luxury to want to get together with one of your very best friends who happens to live hundreds of euros away by plane? Is it a luxury to crave to see what else there is on this planet and experience different ways of life?
If I could afford it, travelling would be my favourite pastime. You know, we have a whole trip to Scotland planned; we know where we'll be staying, and some of the places we'll see if we ever (or whenever, to be more optimistic) manage to go there.
I don't believe that money can buy happiness in a general sense, but it certainly wouldn't hurt if a few more things were free or at least much cheaper.
What do you think?
