I truly think that wanting things, money and working hard to get what you want isn’t wrong.
However, letting the lack of those things listed above control your attitude towards people, and life is wrong.
You all may disagree with me, but if you are able to pay your bills, and have what you need every month, you should be happy in that. And if you can’t be happy there, then more money won’t make you happy either. And I personally believe that if you have your priorities in line when you’re just able to get by, and are working hard, that the rest of your life will fall into place.
I like money. Don’t get me wrong. And designer shoes, and fun stuff for my horses. But technically I have what I need: a roof over my head, a barn, some four-footed equine friends, great friends, a truck that runs and money to go to barrel races. Would I like to go to more barrel races? Absolutely. But that’s not feasible right now, so I am content in my current situation, realizing that it will not be this way forever. Though, if my husband and I had similar life priorities (sometimes I wonder how I married a man with such different likes!) I might get to go to more barrel races. But that isn’t the case, so again I am content.
You could call me a happy cat!
