Could You Live Without Money?

by Pam on August 31, 2010

Do you ever get tired of worrying about money and wish that you could just live without it?  Well, a man by the name of Mark Boyle has done just that.  Since 2008 he has managed to live what he calls a moneyless lifestyle.  He grows his own food, lives in a small trailer, and bathes in a nearby stream.  He claims he has never been happier and more content in his life.  He also says he is much healthier and more fit now.

Wow!  Who would have thought that anyone could survive these days without even attempting to earn money?  Although Mark’s lifestyle is definitely not for everyone, I can definitely see the appeal of living like him, at least for a short period of time.  But for many people this lifestyle is not feasible due to their existing responsibilities and ambitions.  That being said, it doesn’t mean we can’t still be carefree to a certain extent.

How?  By making sure that you are working to live and not living to work, and by spending your money on the things that matter the most to you and that will enhance your life experiences.  In other words, don’t get caught up in trying to keep up with the Joneses, but instead give your money to charities that you care about, use your money to travel to places you’ve always wanted to see, and be sure to live your life to the fullest.

Some may be in need of a different perspective and may benefit from an experience like Mark’s, but whether or not you choose to be so extreme, it is important to put money in its proper place in your life.
