Lately, times have been a little difficult financially. It's not that I need a whole lot of money to be complete, but it certainly makes you appreciate those days when you had a little more cushion. It seems as though it's consumed me...the worry of it all. Will we be able to live? Can we still afford the house we live in? And of course, the 'what if' worries.....what if this happens...what if that happens.
Somewhere, in the big middle of all the worrying, I forgot how to live. Correction....I didn't forget HOW to live, I just forgot TO live. I'm sure I'm not alone in this slowly sinking boat...am I? Simple fact is, if I don't LIVE, what's the point of all the worry? I'm not doing anything of value anyway. Why carry on?
It's a double-edge sword, this money thing. It consumes you when you have it and when you don't.
My point here is, that the old adage, "Money changes everything" doesn't just apply to those that have a ton of it. It also changes the way you think and act when you have just enough to get by. The importance of the almighty dollar isn't so glamorous anymore. What's glamorous is having your basic needs met. What's important is not that new must-have Gucci bag. What's important is LIVING! Drawing in each day as if it were your last breath. No matter what you situation, you have to live life to it's fullest. Whatever capacity that is for you - LIVE LIFE!!! There is no greater moments than those that touch the soul.
Live now, while you have the chance. Don't wait around for the worries to end or for you to have enough money to live. No better time than the present. It's a gift - that's why it's called the PRESENT.
Peace, love and LIFE!
