I'm sure this will be an interesting discussion!
Over the last few days of isolation, I decided to re-watch Breaking Bad. In one of the episodes, Jessie and Jane get his £480k and talk about it being freedom and being able to do loads of different things.
In the current climate, it's really been an interesting realisation for me. No matter how much money you have, if there is an illness with no cure and you cannot leave the house, money is completely irrelevant and it goes back to "just being happy" and content with what you have and the people around you.
Ok, you would be isolated in a bigger house with more wine and possibly better quality food. You could not go out, spend your money, show off, pay for treatment (other then buying inflated tests to see if you have the virus). It puts things into perspective and makes you realise the saying of "no point being the richest man in the graveyard" is actually pretty true. My Nan used to live by the belief that as long as you had enough money for a cream cake, you were ok. I believed this to mean, keep some money put aside for a rainy day. I've always lived by this and never lived outside my means.
Has anyone else had any realisations or their personal value of money changed? I'm sure loads of you have been hit with investments as I have read in other posts. Will you live your life differently once this has blown over?
