  1. I like your Sunday Sharies series because I rarely get the time to search out articles for myself and in any case they always seem so much more interesting when someone else recommends them! I like The Japanese Art of Being a Zen Millionaire, With Ken Honda the best. I like the gentle and appreciative approach to money. I especially like the part were he speaks of money flowing like a river and that you simply need to stand in the flow and not worry about where money is coming from or where its going.
    This is a good reminder for me that I do not need to get too caught up in how much everything costs but just to enjoy being free of money worries. And what a privilege that is!

    1. I thought it was an interesting perspective too! I liked how he mentioned it’s okay to get excited about things and say thanks for $2 off coupons.

      I’m glad you found them interesting!
