I don’t care too much for money, and money can’t buy me love.
Can’t buy me love, love. Can’t buy me love. - The Beatles
You know you sang it. Come on, admit it.
There are so many times in my life that I think that if we just had more money, we’d be happier. If we had more money, we wouldn’t worry about retirement. If we had more money, we would pay cash for college. If we had more money, we would pay off all of our debt. If we had more money, we would buy our dream home. If we had more money, we would go on more vacations.
I bet you’ve said that or felt that way before in your life, haven’t you? The truth is though that happiness has absolutely nothing to do with money. I believe we have a choice. Every day when we wake we can choose to be happy or not.
We tend to forget that happiness doesn’t come as a result of getting something we don’t have, but rather of recognizing and appreciating what we do have. - Frederick Keonig
In an effort to encourage the discovery of happiness, and with inspiration from Frank Sonnenberg, I have chosen to do a mental exercise in appreciation of things that money cannot buy.
