I saw this quote on Facebook today, posted by Dave Tieff of Laughing Colors:
Money is obviously important. We do need it. But do we really need as much as we think? Some points:
-Think of all the rich and famous people who kill themselves. They’re not doing it cuz they’re overwhelmingly happy.
-Think of all the the rich and famous people who destroy their health with drugs and alcohol, and die young. They’re not doing it cuz they’re overwhelmingly happy.
-Think of all the Lottery winners. Most of them go bankrupt. Imagine that crazy sense of euphoria when you win the Lottery. Now imagine losing it. YIKES that would suck.
So it seems that lots of money really doesn’t guarantee happiness. But having lots of money is what many of us still want. Why?
Something to think about!
Let’s focus on happiness and caring for others. Money might come and go; don’t let it control your happiness! Start with the happy.
THANK YOU for reading! I love you and pray for your safety, happiness, and health!
