Would A Million Dollars Make You Happy?

Follow Your Heart... Not exactly as cool as the face of Jesus in a Walmart receipt
but a tortilla chip with a heart had special meaning for me.

Think about it.

Wouldn't it be great if you didn't have to worry about mortgage payments, ongoing medical bills, college tuition, electric bills (after running the air conditioner for a month straight), credit card debt, impromptu shopping spree bills or whatever keeps you from getting ahead?

Life would be so much happier if you had money to pay for everything. Or would it?

Once upon a time, I might have said yes.

Now, I know the real answer is no.

A million dollars might makes things easier, but it won't make you happier.

Happiness comes from your inner self. When you are truly happy from within, the joy you experience in everything you do, is greater. Being happy heightens sensations, makes jokes funnier, love deeper, bonds stronger. Heck it might even make the skies appear bluer.

Without inner happiness, all the money in the world won't make you happy.

So, take a moment to listen to your own heart.

What's it saying to you?

Slow down. Speed up. Take a leap. Take a chance. Write a story. Write a song. Go back to school. Get a new job. Open your heart. Love someone unconditionally. Follow your passion.

Can you hear what your heart is saying?

Whatever it is.. listen to it.

You'll never be truly happy until you do.
