All tagged The radiance falls on all of us
We did not pay off our consumer debt by accident. Today, we write in praise of hard work and the four miracles of our financial success. Also... Underemployment in America, and why looking at the world through a lens of hope is some seriously powerful shiznit.
Each of us comes packaged with highly variable values and priorities. Just like there is no single standard of beauty, there are a multitude of ways to define what it means to live a good life. It's why we all want different things in romantic partners, household budgets, and political candidates. Building a meaningful life (much like setting big financial goals) requires a deeply moving "Why?" Also... a bit about the evils of external validation.
Our worth is in no way determined by our past. Sometimes we have to rewrite our story and reimagine our place in the world in order to reach further and do more.
