Very well said Joker2415.... that's a life lesson i think everyone has to learn for themselves. I ran my own business and did very well, and bought everything i could think of and anything i wanted pretty much. Thought stuff would make me happy, it never did, nor did making a lot of money. instead now i've learned to focus on what's important to me and spending time with family and friends is more important than chasing possessions or money. Taking trips or riding my motorcycle, the things i really love doing, that's what matters to me now. I took 2 weeks and rode my R1200GS around Colorado this year. Camped and just rode around the mountains for 10 days, it was awesome and something i'll remember forever. I'd rather do that every year than buy a bunch of shit i won't use in 6 months.
Ironically i just got back into pins about a month ago, i sold things to buy the pins and any parts i needed. Give something, get something. Actually feels great and it's nice to get rid of things i have laying around that i don't use or need and instead get something I enjoy. I now host a weekly pin night with a few friends. We get together, hangout and play pinball once a week. It's awesome.
