Lately I feel that people are concerned with the wrong things. I mean I’m not saying I know all, but come on people, does it really matter how much you spent on that Louis Vuitton bag? Or how you’re father accidentally bought you a coach plane ticket instead of first-class? Today in conversation with a friend I said “Well money isn’t everything..” and she replied “It is where I come from.” Boy am I glad I’m not from where she’s from. Sure it’s helpful to be economically stable, but it should bring us happiness. We learned that stuff as children (well at least I did) and it was proven as I grew up. Money does NOT buy happiness. It does but chocolate peanut butter ice cream however, which is pretty darn close..

Wow. You know, life is pretty amazing. In the end, why does it even matter the weather, or how much money you have, or what you are wearing, or how “bad” your day is so far? At the end of the day its the smallest things, that make it all worth it. The fact that you are freaking living, in such a great place, makes it all worth it. So smile, and look around.
I can say I would not be who I am today without the wise words from this lady.
