I was struck yesterday with the following: that there is wisdom involved in not only diversifying your finances, but in diversifying your life and the way you spend your time. We don't know how much time we'll have to live and you shouldn't just start planning to "truly live" after you do something-- for example, retire or save up a certain amount of money. Of course, we shouldn't go into debt to "live richly." But we should make sure to always squeeze into our schedules the things that truly matter. Like many people, for Ivy and me that includes family, friends, church, serving others, books, traveling, exercise, music, art, being outdoors.
