“Everything that’s really worthwhile in life came to us free — our minds, our souls, our bodies, our hopes, our dreams, our ambitions, our intelligence, our love of family and children and friends and country. All these priceless possessions are free.”
This is a beautiful quote from Earl Nightingale, and…how true it is!
Think about it. You can lose all of your money and start over. If your house burns down, you can rebuild it. It’s the things in life that cost you nothing that you can never replace.
We all know there are many distractions along the road of life that will try to pull us away from our values. Sometimes we are forced to make difficult choices. But a good rule of thumb is that when you have to sacrifice material possessions for one of those “free things” that life has given you…you’ve made the right choice.
