I have a waterfall outside my house.
I said to someone at work that I'm pretty sure that MAYBE 1% of the population has a freaking waterfall outside their windows. I'm in the one percent, I said, gleefully.
She said, I don't think it's EVEN one percent.
My apartment, by the way, is not large or fancy. It's teeny and very simple. Great room. Bathroom. Galley kitchen. The end. Three rooms.
But the view. Oh, kids, the view. Especially now:
All of this is, I think, a way of pointing out that you are wealthy in ways beyond money. We all are. While some of us are also financially wealthy -- and that's great for them -- every person I know carries wealth and abundance in some aspect of her or his life. While financial wealth is nice, it's those other areas of wealth that really fill the soul.
Find the wealth in your life. Recognize it. Embrace it. Celebrate it.
And in the meantime? I will be enjoying my view.
