    So... I'm watching that documentary series on Jeffrey Epstein on Netflix (I like documentaries + I'm bored while I knit)... and a phrase caught me off guard. "Living a life that people only dream of" while showing massive mansions, expansive lands, numerous houses and golf courses.

    And I thought to myself: Am I the only one who doesn't want any of that stuff? I'm not particularly interested in large expansive houses, expensive cars, pools, golf courses or expensive jewelry, really high end clothes, etc.

    Statements made like that make me feel really peculiar because I live in America.. we're supposed to want/desire those things, but I don't. Is something wrong with me that I don't desire wealth or fame?

    I dunno.. just a random thought.

    You're not weird.

    I hear you.
    I just want to enjoy my days - as they come and try to appreciate them.
    Working makes my "free" time more enjoyable and looked forward to.

    Don't want to own lots of stuff or retire either.

    Precisely. I want to do the most I can with the limited time I have on this earth. I have to assume I only get the one lifetime (since I don't know if a higher power exists or if reincarnation is a thing). Sure, it would be great to have more wealth to go *do* those things I want, but there's other less expensive things I can do in the meantime, like sharing moments with the few people I care about, petting cats, creating every day and learning new things.

    I just feel at odds with it, is all. Bleh.

    I wonder how the face recognition software is handling recognizing faces with people having facemasks and sunglasses on. 🤔

    It’s not working well on my phone I’ll tell you that much.

    Funny story my 16 yo daughter got her hair cut. Now every time she comes through the front door it recognizes her as my son. She hates it. Hahah

    I think there is a couple things going on with this idea. The first is that material things will bring happiness, which to an extent is true, there are definitely items that can bring joy or more comfort to your life. But I think we get lost in the more is better idea along with that, which isn't necessarily true. Then there are those who amass things specifically to impress others, or I guess they get their happiness from impressing others? That's not really my thing either, but I guess to each their own.

    The other thing is sometimes we assume the cost that goes along with things is more than it really is. I have had a horse for a long time, which is typically considered a "wealthy person's" hobby. I don't deny it takes a certain amount of money to afford a horse, but most people who aren't familiar with the horse industry think of fancy show horses and barns, but that's probably only the top 10% of the industry. I know some avid runners who spend more in race fees each month that I do on my horse, but typically running isn't looked at as a "wealthy person's" sport.
