    Default What constitutes "the good life" for you?

    I expect the answers to be wide and varied to this question, but i'm curious, what aspects of your life satisfy you and which parts do you think need improvement (if any) in order to meet your expectations for "the good life"?

    Pretty much what everyone else said. Not worrying about bills, being able to live without worrying about money. Food, clothes, outings, holidays etc. I feel it's all a pressure. I don't want to be rich, just comfortable. My DH had holidays recently and we couldn't even afford to go out for a coffee.

    A strong community, where the 'village' is there for you. A sense of belonging.

    I guess its the ' freedom' to be able to do the things you enjoy, and things that give you real meaning in your life and to ' live' life. So usually that involves having the means to do it and having a life that is hassle / stress free enough to do it ...i think (for me )owning a home and not having to pay a mortgage and debts combined with a good cashflow frees you up to live a pretty good life but you need your health just as much to achieve a good life.

    Having mental and physical health whilst having loving family and friends, rewarding career/job/purpose and enjoy down time. Family holidays. Financially stable although in saying that money isn't everything and certainly not the most important.
