If you take me as a sample, I can tell you a few things:
1. I drive a 12 year old car.
2. I live in a studio apartment.
3. I watch a 19” TV from 1983.
4. I never made more than $115K a year in salary.
I thinking I am in the running for the world’s cheapest millionaire.
Don't have a lot of money but we are happy as clams. Well, you know... except for the State of the Republic and making the bills!
FWIW one of the principles I've tried to live by and instill into our three kids.
The measure of a man isn't the amount of money he makes.
It isn't how he speaks, or how he is thought of in his community.
The measure of a man is his ability to take his God given strengths and use them to provide for his family, help his neighbors, take care of himself and thank his Creator.
I've tried to live by that and failed often, but my family is still here despite all tribulations.
We are enjoying Life.
