I’ve been thinking about life on a much broader scale of late. I’ve spent a lot of time only regarding myself when it comes to every single aspect of life but as I’m getting a little older and wiser, I find myself evaluating things from a different perspective.
I’ve been thinking a lot about creating a legacy, really evaluating what I stand for and generational wealth. In school, I was always taught that you should follow the academic system up until university (if you want) then you go on to get a job. Society taught me that said job would hopefully be enough to sustain my family with food, clothes and possibly holidays which is great but in my mind, I’ve just been thinking about how surface level this is. I’ve never really been taught about creating a legacy or creating something bigger than me that one day my children can inheret and hopefully take over.
We live in a society that revolves around capitalism and instant gratification and that’s one of the main reasons why I think that it was never instilled in me to try and start something that would render generational wealth. I hardly have any friends or family with ‘old money’ but I’ve seen the lifestyles of those with such means and it’s something that I want for myself and my family.
