A friend said, “My daughter is going back to her college campus. Her online classroom might be cheaper but college is more than classwork.”
We both looked at each other, nodded and said, “Wouldn’t take nothin for it! There is no amount of gold that I would exchange for my college education and experience.”
Much is said about how much gold (money) this one or that one has.
Is their life truly rich?
We don’t know about them. We know about us.
I have too many experiences and have gained too much as a result of those experiences that are worth more than gold (dollars).
I wouldn’t trade the experience of friends, community, music, art, beauty for money. I certainly wouldn’t trade my health or strength or wellness for gold.
I have the wisdom gained from years of observing, listening, studying. No one can put a price on wisdom or what I went through to gain that wisdom.
My life overflows with gold–the gold that can’t be brought or traded away or lost. I add to that gold daily.
Hope you know and value the gold in your life. Know that its yours–can’t be stolen or taken away–but can be used by you and others to make life richer, more satisfying.
Here’s to increasing the gold that matters.
