I saw the below quote attributed to the Dalai Lama floating around on Facebook today.
I am not 100% sure if he actually said this, but I am sure that the sentiment is something I believe...
We all gotta make our way in this world, and making some money to do so is part of the equation for most of us.
But the bottom line for me is:
Life is short. Sure, be responsible, but do not sacrifice your mental or physical health, and do not delay experiences for "sometime in the future," when you assume you'll be healthy and wealthy in the name of money or the maniacal pursuit of it.
