Being rich is having money; being wealthy is having time.
-Stephen Swid, executive (b. 1941)
Nowadays, with so many of us worried about the economy, and many of us trying to stick to tighter budgets during the holiday season, I thought that this quotation was appropriate.
The interesting thing though is that while there may be a limit to how much money we can make (at least in a short amount of time) we have much more control over how much time we can make – time for ourselves, our loved ones, and the important things in our lives.
It is important to remember that we do have this ability so that we do not let the circumstances that may be beyond our control take over.
I hope you enjoy this day after Thanksgiving, whether you are able to spend a lot of money in the stores today or not. Find (or make) time today for the people and things that you love.
