There is a deep inner joy that is unlikely found in financial wealth. Although being rich allows me to satisfy material wants, it is insufficient for true happiness. I seek that contentment from richness of relationships and peace of mind.
Being wealthy allows me to pay for anything, but possessions have a fleeting value. I prefer to use financial wealth to do good things in the world.
Whenever I earn money, I put aside a portion for charity. Being able to help the less fortunate gives me a feeling of accomplishment. I feel happy when I see my contributions support the basic necessities of others.
I use my financial wealth to expose my kids to new learning experiences. When I see their horizons expanding, I get a true sense of inner happiness. The joy runs deep when I am able to facilitate their progress.
When I look at the spending opportunities in front of me, I choose the ones that bring togetherness.
Being able to bond with my family and friends is meaningful. I also celebrate being able to use my resources to promote togetherness in the wider community.
Today, I am happy that I rely on meaningful experiences for deep joy. I acknowledge that financial wellness rarely means true happiness. I am conscious of the difference between superficial happiness and deep rooted joy.
