when people make important decisions such as immigration, it appears to me people just simply compare the 3 items on a balance sheet: income, house, car. There is no space for passion, dream, wonder, curiosity, exploration.
I have been away from my own dream for more than 10 years and buried myself in the "balance sheet" for the same period time.
I just want to remind myself and the other people that those most precious human attributes, wonder, curiosity, etc are just as important as those 3 items in our decision making. By saying that, I am not denying the importance of money to our basic life. :)
