I smile every day. I laugh every day.

I remind myself of this any time I start to wonder if I’m doing things wrong.

My kids laugh and smile a lot too.

And I see them choosing paths that bring them fulfillment.

I know so many people “living the American dream” and for many I encounter, I actually see it as they’re living a nightmare.

Money can buy you a “perfect husband or wife”, privilege, cars, big houses, fancy wardrobes, 5 star hotels, restaurants and vacations, and a whole lot of empty people (“friends”) who will kiss your ass.

It can also buy you alcohol and drug addiction to help you fill the empty void and keep life “SO fun” 24/7.

But it will never buy you happiness.

It’s not for sale.

There is nothing wrong with creating wealth. With earning what you’re worth.

But so many people lose the meaning of life along the way while trying to create it.
