Wealth is defined as a great amount of money or possessions. Rich is defined as having a large supply of desirable things. There are so many ways how to be rich! And having desirable possessions isn’t what counts.
With the financial recession things are a lot different than they were a few years ago. Many of us were more set on making money and ‘getting ahead’ and trying to figure out how to be rich. Working to make money, taking overtime to make more money, sitting at a computer buying- selling stock, finding the best interest rates to move cd’s, working on that resume, trying to find an even more time consuming job to make more and more money.
Ideas and thoughts are so different now about how to be rich. The recession has forced us to take a greater look inside ourselves and take inventory of what is important to our true selves, rather than always trying to climb to that next ‘how to get rich’ job.
Spending time with family, friends, neighbors and work partners gives more riches than any ‘thing’ could. Sharing a game night with family instead of sitting at a computer; enjoying a barbeque with friends and neighbors; taking time to have lunch with work partners instead of polishing up a resume and thinking about how to make and spend money.
That is HOW TO BE RICH.
We’re all taking time to smell the roses and learning how to be rich in so many new ways. What have you been doing lately to be rich?

If September is your birthday month – Best Wishes For A Happy Birthday!!
Happy Sunday! I was up early this morning, before everybody else in the house and decided to make hash browns. Alone in the kitchen, in complete and blissful silence, a relaxed feeling came over me while peeling the potatoes, shredding them in the food processor, pouring the oil in the pan, using the salt and pepper shakers, when suddenly I was taken to another time.
Our Charlie Brown and Snoopy salt and pepper shakers took me back to a simpler, childhood time, when my sister and I would look forward to our two times a year opportunity to bond with Charlie Brown, Snoopy, and the rest of the Peanuts Gang in “It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” and “Charlie Brown Christmas.” The sounds of their voices, the funny dancing, the classic music, all fond memories that came rushing back, just by pulling out my salt and pepper shakers. A pleasant way to begin this day….
Have a wonderful week. May it be filled with unexpected pleasures.
