For years, I have been asked, why do you rent? Why don't you get a home? The answer is simple. My apartment is my home.
I can't tell you how many times I have listened to complaints like:
When I have a landlord, I have the convenience of traveling worry free and since utilities and maintenance is included in the rent, I don't get stuck with those unexpected bills. I volunteer with clients who are homeless and don't want to end up in a similar situation. For me, I can do that by renting. I enjoy the stress free lifestyle it has allowed me.
... is the intentional promotion of the things we most value and the removal of everything that distracts us from it. It is about re-evaluating our pursuits, our habits, and our motivations.
