Real life as in a happy, meaningful, productive life one assumes.
This becomes clearer as one becomes older. Your priorities change, mine certainly have, I just want the free time, because work, no matter what you get paid, uses up your time. And as far as I am concerned if I had more time to do what I really want to do, I would be happier.
That's right. An abundant life leaves very little void to fill up with "stuff".
Stuff, and more stuff bogs you down, and prevents you from moving on. In the grander scheme of things, where does stuff belong?
I'm reminded of Imelda Marcos, former first lady of the Philippines - she had so much stuff.
The Shah of Iran and family. They had so much stuff. At the end of the day, they all fled leaving their stuff behind.
