There’s so much anger, frustration, hatred and bitterness in the world. If you get caught up in the daily news cycle and get upset over random political events or have strong likes and dislikes, you will end up as a very sad person.
Stay away from the news, and focus on what makes you happy, whether it is gardening, cooking or watching sports on TV. Don’t get obsessed with making money, as long as you have enough to be financially independent, that’s good enough.
Don’t compare with other people, you will always be disappointed as there will always be people who are richer, better looking or smarter than you. Operate with a sense of detachment with the world, and yes, be self-centered, but in a good way, without causing any hurt to others.
Well, good luck!
As for me I am busy till July 7th/8th, after that I can relax, get a haircut, get an eye checkup start exercising, go to the movies, catch up on my reading etc. Cutting down work to a minimum after July 7th/8th. Will have a semi-retired life on Fiverr after that. Been fun, but I have to move on. Have made a lot of money over the last few years (by Indian standards), but have become very unfit. Have to get back my fitness, that’s my priority for the rest of 2016.
