Is there a difference?
I’d say there is a profound difference between living life, and buying a lifestyle!
One way provides for deep sense of satisfaction and fulfillment in life. It provides an opportunity to make a meaningful impact on the world around us. It happens as result of a life lived on purpose, and consistent with deeply held values.
The other way leads to frustration, overwhelm. It leaves a sense of feeling like our work doesn’t matter. It leaves an emptiness. It leaves us with questions like, “What have I REALLY accomplished with my life?”
I’ll leave you to figure out which result above goes with which approach to life. And which way you’d rather approach your life!
