It was Oscar Wilde who said “Everything in moderation, including moderation.”
Love this quote, it has quickly become one of my favorites. It has come to be my mantra in recent times.
You see, I tried to live in a perpetual state of financial moderation, which left me unfulfilled and very miserable, yes it let me save and save and save, looking towards what I thought at the time was an acceptable goal, and indeed it was if I had had the right partners. But now I’ve realised, having goals is great, but if you put all hopes in one goal and none in the basket of personal satisfaction, if that goal should fail, you end up a basket case.
I’ve also tried to live in verbal moderation, trying to speak only mildly. They say the meek shall inherit the earth but lemme tell you, if you aren’t of the temperament to be stepped on, there are times when that moderation thing needs to leave the room a few minutes.
I tried to moderate myself basically. Constantly killing myself over self branding and all that ish. Nope not working iether.
Instead balance is called for so I learned that moderation is fine, but sometimes even that can be too much.
