Three things on the beach
In this episode I talk about three things; that’s it!
First, the importance of sitting quietly by the ocean, just to remind yourself of your insignificance, Second, how we have really dirtied all our surroundings from hills to rivers, to beaches; finally, I look at how having money doesn’t solely determine how good your experience is. It surely helps, but knowing what you want helps more.
Hope you enjoy listening to this episode and thanks as always!
