Before giving up my job I was researching and remembering ways to simplify my life. Two new influences being Leo Babauta of www.zenhabits.net and Scott Dinsmore of www.liveyourlegend.net both of whom help focus my personal needs and values.
So, here I am ready to simplify and focus my life on creating something important while doing something I value. Then I receive a text from my bank showing me my final salary payment, a fear set in. Oh no maybe i have to start looking at my own budgeting skills and needs. Being well paid with low outgoings this something that is easy to slip when life gets “to comfortable”.
When the fear subsided I decided to look at the pro’s and cons of having a low income. In my early twenties I had the privilege of being fed,housed by the government through state benefits, so I decided to re-visit how I dealt with hard ship and explore how two chapters in my adult life can create a positive life movement in going forward.
