Putting Value on Your Mental Space

Now that we’re quite settled in at our new home, we are having more time to fully appreciate the home instead of the flurry of unpacking activities amidst caring for the toddler and the infant. I find embracing the present moment to be very calming in this surrounding environment.

Mr.C and I have always stayed at HDBs and we typically moved every 1-2 years so we have stayed at a variety of locations across Singapore in HDBs. HDBs tended to be much older and dated units though generally the HDBs we choose gave us better access to amenities.

While we have been embracing the clutter-free lifestyle for a bit now with some way to go, living in a dated unit has a very different effect on our mental space versus our current condo which is new, modern, flooded with lots of natural light and offers gorgeous views of greenery from every room thanks to the massive windows. Mind you, we’re on a low floor however that is just one of the things done right with this development by being generous with the greenery.

Staring out the window, I did some self reflection on how entirely happy I am living here. While financially we worked out that this was the most cost efficient option for us given our other options, I do think that this would be one of the situations where quality of life trumps the savings, if any. FIRE is as much as the journey as it is the destination.

What is the price you are willing to pay for your desired mental space?

Signing off, one happy coconut 😉
