The Quiet Life Of The Poor Man

Henry David Thoreau’s Walden and Civil Disobedience is a dense book but written within the first few pages, there are lines that have more meaning and impact than most books.  For e.g. “That mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation.”

What does that mean though?  Here’s another line that might give you some context: “Some of you, we all know, are poor, find it hard to live, are sometimes, as it were grasping for breath.”  It’s dramatic but true because there’s nothing like being broke.  Desperation and grasping for air are both spot on ways to describe what it’s like to live paycheck to paycheck.

Even if you’re not living paycheck to paycheck, not having enough money to live comfortably is no way to live.  If you’re crossing your fingers hoping that your engine doesn’t blow out or that your kid doesn’t have an ear infection because you have no way to pay for it then you are living the quiet desperation that Thoreau was talking about.  You don’t have to be poor to be grasping for breath either.  If it feels like a punch in the gut when your bills come in the mail or if you scramble every month to pay your rent or mortgage then you are grasping for breath.

While money will not fix all your problems, it can at least solve some of them and hand you the stability to work on your other problems.  That’s why this blog post is so important because it’s your chance to get your head above the water.
