Storage and stuff...

I am finishing up a custom song for someone today who hired me to write about something important to them. Before I hide away in my humble so called "studio" I wrote down a few things in my personal daily journal that I would like to share with you all. I hope these words help any of you who have or are struggling financially in these times of "buy it now, you must have it to be happy, blah blah..." - I've learned harder than "the hard way" over the years that "stuff" doesn't matter. Some things are needed to survive, but everything I once paid almost $100 per month for inside of my former "storage unit" was just... Being stored... For nothing. It ALL ended up being given away, trashed or sold eventually and I never made back the money I wasted storing the "stuff" to begin with. We've all been born into a "free country" that is not free at all. It took me too many years, too much hard earned money wasted to finally become self employed and now... I feel more than ever how every... Single... Penny... Matters in my house to simply survive. Sure I have my Harley and my record collection... But even all that did not come for free and in many ways (including scars and pain that will never go away) I will keep paying for that Harley long after it's gone someday. Why am I sharing this with you my friends? Because I am living lighter, simpler and Feel more FREE than I've ever done before and I'd love to see others experience the same feeling of not "wanting more stuff" and living with what we already have.
