Brilliant Analogy Time, 11:11 PM
So the wife and I were talking about life and such. Talking about how it's easy to get caught up in the idea that work and your financial well-being is the only thing that matters, when there's so many other pieces to a happy life - friends, family, physical health, mental health, etc etc. All of these pieces take time, energy and attention, and it's a hell of a juggling act to try to keep on top of all of them. So - the "brilliant analogy" that came to me is that if all these pieces make up a pie, the financial piece is like the crust of the pie, and everything else is the filling. The pie won't hold together without the crust, but it sure don't taste too good without the filling, either. Food for thought.
