The Things Money Cannot Buy

.’

The best things in life are free.’
American Proverb

.
Not much money? They do say the best things in life are free.

.
In life some of the best things are intangible; and that we can experience them at any time if we just open our heart and mind to let them in.

.
The best things in life are your health, your love, your freedom, your intelligence, your friends – you cannot buy any of those because they are all free.

.
What we most value – love, dignity, good conduct, pride, trust, friendship, care – does not come from money.

.
We all have experiences that give us a different perspective on life. They have a lasting impact if only because they are memorable experiences, which move, touch and so stay with us. They make us feel authentic, as if we have found ourselves – through travel – rather than having ourselves defined by humdrum work. They usually involve relationships, bringing people together: friends, families, lovers, fans and believers.

.
The objects in our lives that we really value – the stuff we cannot bring ourselves to throw away – mark out relationships that we value – a memento from holiday, a family photograph, a collection built up with a partner, toys kept from childhood.

.
Money does not make the world go round – not all the time, and never on its own. Money really brings meaning to our lives only when it helps us in our search for something more.

.

Remember happiness comes as a result of appreciating smaller things in life instead of crying for bigger things in order to gain happiness. Take a closure look at what you value today.

.
‘Sleep, hugs, kisses, love, friends, family, memories, smiles, laughter and fun, the best things in life are free.’
