You’re wealthy if people like you.
I don’t mean “like” as in people-pleasing, approval-seeking, or being a doormat. I mean other people like spending time with you, talking with you, being around you. They enjoy your company. They want you around. You’re a positive influence in their lives.
If you have that, you’re wealthy.
You’re wealthy if you have love. If somebody loves you. If you love somebody. Even if it’s just a pet. Or your job. Or where you live. Or some hobby or passion you have. A sibling, a best friend, a co-worker, a parent, a neighbor, a stranger, a lover…
Love is love, whether it’s romantic or not, and if you have love in your life, you’re very wealthy.
You’re wealthy if you’re happy. That’s really what we’re all going after, isn’t it? If you’re happy, if you have something, big or small, to be grateful for… if you’re enjoying life… you’re wealthy.
Real wealth is memories, experiences, connections… Real wealth is internal, how you feel, how you live… If you’re living your life aligned with your core values and beliefs. If you’re kind, generous, considerate, compassionate… you are a wealthy person.
