Two weeks ago, y’all considered whether you would prefer to know your life’s purpose or to never have money worries again. As many of you noticed in the comments section, money was the clear, unanimous winner.
Several people commented that knowing their life’s purpose or plan would take the joy and the fun out of exploring and determining one’s own journey. And while I agree with that logic, I also think I interpreted the question a little differently than many of you. I thought knowing one’s life purpose had more to do with a generalized thumbs up from the universe whenever a choice or decision was made. Like say, for instance, when I decided to seriously pursue this writing gig, it would have been helpful to know if this is where my talents truly lie. (*Note to self: make sure universe has my address, email, cell phone number, Facebook page, and Twitter account so I don’t miss the affirmative sign…)
Then again, experimentation, trying new things, and taking on different challenges while not knowing how it all turns out can be part of the fun.
In the end, I decided to go with the money option, too. I have no shortage of ways I could spend it and not having to worry about it ever again would be so freeing. I could spend more time doing the things I love (like travel and writing) without stressing about money any further.
And now, on to this week’s question…
Would you rather
get to travel outside of your own country to a place you’ve always wanted to see, but with only enough money for barely adequate accommodations and food
– OR –
have to stay in your own town or city with more than enough money to spend on doing all the things you’ve wanted to do but could seldom afford?
Which will it be, intrepid readers? Will it be the siren call of adventure to lands far away even though you won’t have the funds to spend on anything other than food and a place to stay? Or will you choose to explore your hometown to the fullest? Sit, sip, and share your thoughts. I always love to hear from you.
