The world will tell you not to spend money on things but to spend it on experiences. I would like to take that notion one step further. Experiences are wonderful but do you know what makes them even better? – to share them with others. Experiences with other people will enrich your life in so many ways.
“Life is beautiful not because of the things we see or the things we do. Life is beautiful because of the people in it.”
We have become a self-obsessed society claiming rights to not just ourselves but also to our families to the point where we are closing ourselves off to everyone else in the outside world to protect our own.
Open the door and invite others into your experiences. Your own life and those you invite in will become that much richer in heart and spirit. Nothing money could ever buy.
I write this in honor of those who open their hearts, their homes and their lives to the world. Living a life of sharing with others can never steer you wrong.
P.S. This post was inspired after spending a Sunday afternoon with 2 wonderful families playing none other than a fun, friendly round of Bingo (candy and cash prizes, need I say more), spending an afternoon this week with 3 longtime friends celebrating a new adventure for one of our own; and meeting a kindred spirit with a heart of gold who I feel is a life long friend already. The more I pay attention, the more I realize, it is truly the simplest things in life that are the most touching and impactful.
