Sunday is for Sharing is a weekly roundup of my favorite articles, videos, and podcasts I read, viewed, and listened to over the past week.
I have decided to start a new weekly series titled Sunday is for Sharing so that I can share with you all what I have been reading, watching, and listening to over the past week. Most of the topics revolve around personal finance, minimalism, productivity, and philosophy, but they all provide insights on how to live a good life. Enjoy!
My Favorite Video
This video won a Vimeo “Best of the Year” award last year. It’s a poignant reminder that life is short and tomorrow is never guaranteed.
My Favorite Articles
“My background of less is a big advantage. I perceive things that are considered ordinary or even sub-par here as luxurious. My first car purchase after I moved here was a Honda Civic. I remember proudly sending a picture of the car to my father who had long lusted after that car but not been able to afford it; 10-15 years ago in India a Honda Civic was a luxury vehicle that only the rich could afford.”

“Eventually I felt like I was missing something. Why wasn’t money and professional success making me happy?”

“If you’ve thought to yourself “I think I’ve finally reached the right number of things for me,” you’ve probably only reached your ‘comfort zone'”
“It turns out, though, that money makes a better means than master. What I mean by that is if you’re doing your work to gain more, this is a pursuit that will leave you feeling empty, bored, and disenchanted.”
“Maybe for our family and the season we’re in, small living is helping us look outward more, rather than at the house itself and what’s inside.”
