In my twenties, “better” meant bigger, more expensive, higher quantity.
And when I got older and more exposed, “better” meant smaller, less costly, dispossession.
Today, “better” means more appropriate, ideal, fewer but higher quality.
Better means less and small but impactful circle of friends.
Better means less fame and more significance.
Better doing work that matters and not that is popular.
What is appropriate for me may not be appropriate for you, and vice versa.
Living intentionally helps us define what “better” means in the context of our own lives.
Said another way:
It is not the size of that house that matters, it is how you use it.
