Non-Financial Wealth – 100 Day Blog Challenge – Day 99

Non-Financial Wealth

Today’s topic goes to my hubby.  I’m on the last 2 days and completely stumped.  I like this topic he gave me and I’m excited to share some thoughts on it.

In today’s society, we are so consumed by money.  Debt, financial freedom, possessions.  Yes, it’s a part of our lives and something we all need to get better at controlling.  When we step back and realize the things we have that money can’t buy – living in a free country, the ability to live, work, eat, vote, speak our minds; we truly are rich.

Every day, I look at my boys and can’t believe how blessed I am and this amazing gift I was given.  I’m thankful for all the people who have come into my life – good, bad, indifferent.  They shape me into the person I am.  

Sometimes we have to step back, look from the outside and realize we are blessed.  We are free.  Many risk their lives every day to have what we have.  We should take a few moments every day to appreciate where we live, where we were born and what has been granted to us.  The tables could have been turned and we could be the third world country.  I even have the ability to share these thoughts through a blog post.

In closing, on those days when we feel as if the world is against us, life sucks, nothing is going right…just step back and take it all in.  Appreciate what you have because you never know when or if it will be taken.
