I feel like I've found a bit of Paradise, too. When we were dubs, it was like everything would be put off until Paradise. Marriage, having kids, education, spending time outdoors or enjoying nature, having hobbies, building a life, etc. "We'll struggle through life now having menial jobs and going out in service on all of our days off, but we can really live and relax in Paradise."
Now, things don't have to be put off as much. Though my life isn't great, I am free to enrich it if I so desire, and before I had to postpone that "until Paradise."
