A Million Treasures ~ by DeVonne Reed
September 19, 2015.
You may be wealthy, according to the worlds standards. You may have unlimited resources. You may have an abundance of money and you may be able to purchase and acquire all that your heart desires.
You may have the best "things" that money can buy.
But, that is just what they are...THINGS!
Things cannot love you back.
Things cannot hold you when you need to just be held.
Things cannot make you well when you are ill.
Things cannot make you happy.
There are just some "things" that money cannot buy, such as:
Love, respect, common sense, peace, health, kindness, compassion, happiness, wisdom, faith, Salvation, Grace, Mercy, answered prayers, integrity, morals, class, character, family, a good friend, courage, intelligence, sleep, time, laughter, sunrise and sunset, a clear conscience, trust, and rest, etc.
If you have one or more of these things, then you are richer than you think!
These are some of the most important things to me.
As you can clearly see this is a very limited list.
Actually, this list is only scratching the surface of things money cannot buy.
If you truly want to know the quality of your life, count your blessings. Not just the things that your money has bought. Rather think of all of the things that you have received, things that you have been given, freely and recognize them, seeing they are seasoned with grace.
Truly these possessions are priceless.
Never take a single breath for granted and don't blink...no, we are not promised tomorrow.
It's not about quantity. It is not about how much money you have or how many possessions you have, it's about who and what you have in your life that adds quality to your existence. Invest wisely.
"If you allow people to make more withdrawals than deposits in your life, you'll be out of balance and in the negative. Know when to close the account."
Some people have everything and they are still unhappy.
Always searching for their next noun. You know what I mean...
That special person, place or thing.
Something, yes anything that might bring them satisfaction, even if it is only for a moment in time. I have seen this happen.
In reality, they never find "it" anyway and they must continue to search.
No matter the cost. They do not consider how much pain and suffering they will face and put you through while they are trying to attain their goal.
When most of the time their treasure, their wealth, those things that are the most valuable to them, are right there, within their reach. But, they are too busy looking elsewhere to see what is right in front of them.
So remember this...
"Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life.
Don't be trapped by dogma- which is living with the results of other people's thinking.
Don't let the noise of others opinions drown out your own inner voice.
And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.
They somehow already know what you truly want to become.
EVERYTHING ELSE IS SECONDARY." ~ Unknown
"It's not the years in your life that count, it's the life in your years that matter."
~ Abraham Lincoln
In your eyes, I may not have the best of everything, but in my heart, I am grateful, and I make the best of everything I have.
Actually, I have many blessings that money did not buy. I am rich!
I Have A Million Treasures!
Much LOVE! DeVonne
