Today I was looking at the FB page of a boy I went to school with. I had a big crush on him in Jr. high. It looks like he did very well in life. College degree, great job, beautiful wife. Right now he is on a luxury vacation tour in Tanzania, Africa.
It makes me wonder how some people from the same peer group are so successful in life and others just flounder? I realize that family wealth and success have a lot to do with it. So does hard work and good choices in life. Some is just plain luck.
I think about how I grew up and the choices I made as an adult that led me to where I am today. It is all a matter of perspective I suppose. To millions of people on earth, I am considered a "wealthy" woman. To other millions, I am considered poor and a "leech" on society.
After the debacle with Rich and my unsuccessful bid to break free, I am back to where I started. I want comfort and security, but I also want to break from this tedious life that I live. Maybe I should just sell the house for a couple thousand and be done with it! No more rent, electric and cable bills, no more propane bills, just me, my car and a tent.
