I am not wealthy, but I feel rich. I don’t have a large collection of belongings, but I live in abundance because I choose to define my prosperity in the most basic of ways. I choose to perceive my success in the reflection of the people in my life and I don’t measure that success by any other standards but my own. My richness cannot be seen, only felt. The wealth I have is in the things that I hold dear to my heart and, for that reason, I will never be poor.
I have love in my life, so I will never be without emotion. I have friends in my life, so I will never be without laughter. I have the gift of creativity in my head, so I will never feel alone. I am bathed in the glow of the sun, so I will always be warm. And I live as my most honest self so I will never be afraid. My abundance is overflowing.
True success should only be defined at the end of your emotional journey and not in the possessions you collect along the way. Your greatest wealth lies in the eyes of your partner or your children. Your greatest strength lies in the arms of your family and friends. And your only obstacle is the limit you give your imagination.
I live well because I am rich. My stocks are in my family, my bonds are in my friendships and my gold is in my truth. My richness collects interest with each day that passes because I have people in my life that support me and challenge me. I have discovered new friends that inspire me and that feeling of worth pays me dividends that mean far more to me than monetary wealth ever could. I am living in abundance and I have more than I ever dreamed possible.
