Live a simple life – Day 5

The little money I have – that is my wealth, but the things I have for which I would not take money, that is my treasure.  ~Robert Brault,

I cannot always agree that money can’t buy you happiness.

It does pay for gas when I want to go to the beach.  It allows me to donate to charities with great causes.  It allows me to take a vacation, giving me quality time with my family.  It gives me peace of mind when I can pay the mortgage, groceries and the electric bill.  It allows me to get a massage after working 60 hours a week for months.  It is a big part of survival so I try to be good to it, because it is good to me.  The key is its role.  I don’t make it the most important part of my life but I know I need it to survive.  To live a simple life…  have a budget and do your best to stick to it.  Respect your money.
