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.
