So, You Want To Be RICH?

Honestly, we hear this all the time but  what does this mean? Being that we’re human, the mind reads this title and automatically thinks about just money. Right? Just like being happy has  different definitions for everyone based on their own perspective, being rich does too!  Having a life filled with abundance is a goal for everyone but sometimes we forget what this actually means. Because there are no 2 people who are the same on earth, this can be a strongly difficult one to answer. What I can do is give my opinion in what being rich is through my perspective.

Family and friends. I feel like having the support from not only your family but also your friends brings such a comforting feeling. If you found your purpose and are fulfilling it, this can be a tough eagle like journey and we all know eagles fly alone. Having meaninfor-family-and-friendsgful relationships with people who you built a foundation with has no words that can be spoken. This is absolutely priceless. As a mother and wife,  it’s encouraging to hear how my kids and husband are proud about everything that I do. Having what can seem like the longest days in the world its brings me to a place of mental peace  just to walk into my home and see a welcoming smile from my husband and to be jumped on by my kids. Building a legacy for me and still having a social life was in the beginning something to really grasp and quickly learned how important this is to maintain. Some get so lost in building a life that sometimes we forget to live it.


Spirituality. I believe with all my heart that if you don’t have a strong spiritual life thatspirituality1 you have absolutely nothing at all. Personally in my own life, I found that without my heavenly father I am absolutely nothing. In my journey of growing in myself, I found that many of the leaders that I listen to all have something in common. Something you should know about me is that I am a lover of learning! As I watch successful people in lectures and on videos they all have this complete understanding that a higher power is the thing that will bring you peace. My higher power brings me peace and understanding that when I believe I can not do something that I should not worry because He can. When I feel weak I know that I can do all things through Christ that strengthens me and because of this I am forever grateful. This gives me the strength to go another day.

Financial freedom. Even with this title, it is still not only about the money. Like Zig Ziglar said “Money is not everything but it ranks right up there with oxygen!” Something I learned in this beautiful thing called life is what I heard in a sermon. We are free to go wherever we want, but it’s not free to go wherever we want.  I am a mother of 3 small children and also mother like to so many. It is proven that the most beautiful things in life will be free but what do I do if my baby gets sick? To feed them, clothe them and keep a roof over their heads and food on the plate I must have some type of stable income, if not multiple incomes. Do you agree? When I do get alone time with husband its nice to go out on a hot date but that costs sometimes! My anniversary with my husband is this month and even though long walks on the beach can be very romantic, I want to surprise him with a cruise and possibly spend the weekend in another country! When  you have financial freedom you can be a contribution to those who need you and so much more. If you want to donate to causes you can do that and so much more.

I can go on for days about what it means to be rich to me but you can get the idea. The thing so beautiful about today is we have the gift to live it to the fullest in every area of importance to us. We can choose to be the best in every aspect of our lives. We have the ability to be abundantly rich in our families, friendships and social networks. We have the option to gain and maintain a rich status of personal health. We can be a blessing to ourselves and many others financially. To be rich is a tricky one to describe but I would love to hear what it means to you.


With love,
