I was up ALL night with this one...
And when I say ALL night I really mean it. I'm not one of those people that means I was up once or twice. Literally no sleep was had. Which just meant I was able to pin point the exact moment (3:23 AM) that my throat started to close up and feel like I had just swallowed fire in a Polynesian pre-dinner performance.
Other things in my life are starting to eat me alive from the inside out (not having any sleep is not helping in this department). I wish I could be more forthcoming because the details are fairly dramatic and our thought process in navigating all of this would be of some interest.
Things have just gotten more complex and we need to choose for ourselves.
I keep being pointed to "Choose Happiness". Everywhere I go this phrase keeps popping up. And you know sometimes I like to get all metaphysical on your ass.
Things we know:
#1 We can live on a lot less money than we would ever have thought possible.
#2 Mr F is happiest when he is creatively stimulated at work.
#3 Mr F is even happier when his badassness is validated at work.
#4 I want to kill Mr F less when he is happier.
#5 Mr F helps me more when he feels sorry for me.
Things we don't know:
#1 What our exact financial threshold is that allows us to crossover from stressed to comfortable.
#2 If financial stress is worth it if other stress is decreased.
#3 What to do.
