What Does Your “Rich” Life Look Like?

I’ve forgotten where I’ve heard this question, but I think about it every once in a while to recalibrate my trajectory in life. To me, a person’s “rich” life is what they hope and dream their life will look like when they no longer need to work to live. I suppose it’s a similar question to, “What would you do if you won the lottery?” or “What would you do if everything was free?”

I used to think my “rich” life consisted of the lifestyles of the rich and famous. I used to think I was working towards owning a mansion, a penthouse, a private jet and a yacht to start. Maybe I still will own these things one day, who knows? However, I no longer feel like owning these things will make me any more content than I already am.

Currently, my “rich” life is quite simple, to be honest. I tend to overcomplicate things sometimes, but, recently, I’ve learned to appreciate simplicity and minimalism to a certain extent. 

My “rich” life looks like living by the sea in a quaint, little seaside town. Somewhere like Monterrey, Stars Hollow (I know it’s fictional, but it’s beautiful), Storybrooke (I know this one’s also fictional, but also beautiful) or Halifax. I’d have an extensive range of produce growing in the garden in my backyard that would enable me to grow a majority of the food I’d eat. I’d love to run a non-profit organization that organizes events that give back to the community, and in a shocking turn of events, spend most of my time telling & consuming stories.

We’re taught that bigger is better, but it’s okay to know what you want and to know that what you want is not much. As uncomfortable as it can feel, as we’re surrounded by hustle culture, it’s okay to be content.

What’s pretty wild is that once you’re honest with yourself about what your “rich” life looks like and what matters most to you, you’ll realize there’s not much holding you back. You’re a lot closer than you think.

What does your “rich” life look like? Let me know in the comments!

With love,

  1. I’ve always considered my rich life being one where I don’t stress my bills. Just live comfortably within my means and enjoy what I have.
    I guess I’m already rich. Now, to get rid of Covid and it’ll be back to perfect.
