If you live in a first world country like the United States you might have noticed that we are a consumption based society. We consume things. I do! As I look around me I see more things than I can use. I see I have the ability to choose which chair I will sit in and decide which room I will relax in. Lately I find myself wondering how do I leverage what I have to influence the lives of others in a positive way. I’m not talking about a vow of poverty and I’m not talking about forcefully redistributing wealth. I don’t believe in forcefully redistributing wealth. I’m talking about dialing back a notch. Purposefully living below our means, so that I have the ability to share with others.
