Austin Bergstrom Airport, reading George Orwell’s “Down and Out…”
“within certain limits, it is true that the less money you have, the less you worry. When you have a hundred francs in the world you are liable to the most craven panics. When you have only three francs you are quite indifferent; for three francs will feed you till tomorrow, and you cannot think further than that”
I relate to this. Zero balance is very close to the present. With money saved, one can live in the future. I have been financially comfortable for the longest period of my life and have been noticing it is harder to live in the moment than it was during the many years I was broke.
