What do the best things in life have in common?

JULY, 2016
We live in a capitalist society and whilst this article isn’t a debate about capitalism, it’s worth considering this…

We’ve been brought up to value things that we pay money for and place little value on things that are free. “You only get what you pay for” being a good example of a saying we’re all very familiar with. But in reality the opposite is true when you take time to think about it.

I know people who have lost material possessions, even people who have lost their homes, but with a fighting spirit these things can be rebuilt. But when we think about things that are given freely – our minds, our hopes and dreams, our friends and family – these are priceless.

“The things we got for free, we can never replace”.

Reflect on this next time you crave something and you might realise you already have the greatest gifts you could ever wish for for.
