Friends and Family - They're Worth More Than Gold!
By Tina Frazer 12 Comments
Have you ever dreamed of winning the lottery, or looking at a rainbow, wishing there really was a pot of gold?
Isn't if funny how money can do strange things to people, relationships, and the effects it can have on our everyday lives. We've all had those days where you check your coat pockets, your ash-tray (for us non-smokers), or raid the piggy bank for a little spare change. Some have been fortunate enough to win a large sum of money, are born into money, or achieved large salaries and luxury lifestyles, but are often still lonely, unhappy, or unfulfilled?
There is one thing that money can't put a price on and that is friends and family. True friends, and close family are there for you through thick and thin, good days and bad. They offer support when it is needed, make us laugh, share a cry, and fill our lives with joy and a feeling that is priceless.
Certainly, I agree that having money is essential to enjoying everyday things in life from eating out, seeing a movie, to owning a car, or a home. However, instead of always focusing on the 'what next, I wish I had, I wish I could, or the I want more', take a break to focus that energy into what is really important - Your friends and family.
If you want to truly feel fulfilled and happy, just remember, friends and family and the relationships we share with them are worth more than gold!
