3 weeks of road-tripping with sleeping in my car on rest and truck stops really put things in perspective. I realised just how little we really need in terms of comfort to be happy, and how much our complicated lives clutter our minds and prevent us from genuinely enjoying life.
The more we have, the more time and effort we need to maintain it, and that accumulates over time and makes us chronically tired and stressed.
My secret dream is to one day buy an RV and live there. When life is simple and all you have is within your arm's reach, then you can stop worrying about accumulating and storing stuff and can focus on really fun things: reading, travelling, exercising, etc. Realistically I'll probably buy an apartment in a couple of years, then sell it in ~20 years, buy an RV and travel around Americas.
