All too often, we all get caught up in the daily routine of work and school and forget about the important things in life. No, not the things, but the people in our lives - friends, family and even acquaintances.
Sometimes we think if we work more we can get more stuff and be happier; if we do more in school and graduate from a prestigious college we can get more money to make us happier. The Declaration of Independence says we have the right to the pursuit of happiness, not necessarily the achievement of that goal.
Here's the secret.... shhhh... BALANCE YOUR LIFE.
All work and no play makes Jack (or anyone) a dull boy. Spend time, any time, with your family and friends. Work hard. Play hard. Your THINGS won't visit you on your birthday, or when you're sick, or council you when you're troubled. In this age of electronic "friends," real friends are the ones that can count on you and you can count on them - thick or thin. Nourish and cherish them because they are the true wealth in life.
