How Rich Are You????????????? I Am Rich With Love..............



Which would you rather have money or power or neither or both.....................

Me I am happy just having enough money to live nicely on and I am happy. I know many people would like to be rich and powerful but I think being happy is more important and yes I know people can be rich, powerful and happy but that is not the point of this blog and to be honest I think most of those people who appear to have it all…………. do not........................

I have always felt rich but not with money I am rich with love and family I have people around me who love me and who support me no matter how annoying I can be at times. Now we have never been poor either we always have had a roof over our head and food on the table.

Like most people I dream about winning Loto and have oodles of money but I don’t think it will ever happen but it is nice to dream. What would I do with oodles of money well I would share it with my family does that come as a surprise to anyone…………….I doubt it and I would rather see my girls set up in their own home before me and Tim they are young and have a lot more living to do then me. I would rather spend money on nice holidays and a nice car then my own home.

  1. i couldnt care less about power but i would LOVE to be rich enough to buy an island or a cabin on top of the mountain where i only had to see people mayhaps once every four months or so when i went for supplies! i'd be totally self sufficent for the most part. solar panel batteries, garden, raise my own chickens, go fishin. as long as i had my books/movies i'd be in heaven!

  2. Agree with you Jo-Anne, having family around is 'rich', not everyone has that kind of richness.
    Ah! you always think of yourself last - regarding the lotto :)Not everyone has that gift.

  3. I already feel inifinitely powerful because I am in charge of my own life and my own decisions, and that is the best kind of power of all. Too often, having lots of money means being poor in too many other ways. I think our kind of wealth is the best of all.

    1. Yes being in charge of your own life is powerful and so many people do not feel like they have power over their own life

  5. If I could win enough to get out of debt, I'd be quite happy after that. Being rich and powerful isn't for me though, I'd rather just be rich and unknown.

  8. Hi Jo-Anne. Love this post. Like you, we have enough money to live on, but I am rich indeed with the love of my family and friends. What a blessing they are! I like Becca's comment that she is rich in online friendships. I think we can all agree with that. Blogging has brought so much to my life. Like you, if I did win the lottery, it would be wonderful to set my two daughters up . I'd rather spend it on them than on myself really.

  9. I would like to have just enough money to be able to live contently... it would of course be even better if I didn't have to work as I'd spend so much time on my hobbies and would take even more on as there is so much I want to do.

    I'm yet to see/hear about someone rich/powerful/popular who is happy, at some point they divorce/have affairs/end up in drug/alcohol rehab!

  11. I think people are way to concerned with the materialistic side of things. I have a nice life but I am not sure it would have been less if I would of had less. I am grateful for what I have and realize that a lot of people have it worse. I certainly don't want power. Gosh, let me just worry about me. I don't want to have to control others.

  14. In the end, family and friends are our greatest treasure. Knowing that, spending the time we have with them gives us many memories that can't be purchased. Just my thoughts for the moment. :)
