Money isn’t everything

moneypic1“Money has never made man happy, nor will it; there is nothing in its nature to produce happiness. The more of it one has the more one wants.”

– Benjamin Franklin

 

Money has a role in our lives, but put it in perspective.

Yes, it’s important to earn a living and take responsibility for supporting your family and yourself, but seldom are people happy when they make their life’s focus the pursuit of money.

Other priorities are more important. Choose a career you enjoy. Spend time with family and friends. Develop a hobby. Take care of your health. Simplify your life and appreciate its simple pleasures.

Money can be helpful – and it’s great to live in a nice home and surround yourself with nice things. At times, money can even be important.

But be careful living life like money is everything.
