Then you think of the two people that hit the pinnacle of their careers in rock and roll, Elvis and Michael Jackson. Both of them had so much money and were known for their excess. They had what would seem like everything in our society. But both were empty known for their prescription drug use. It amazes me that people romanticize that type of lifestyle. It just shows you that when you do get that brass ring in the entertainment industry your life isn't fulfilled.
When I was younger I wanted to be happy when I grew up. What I soon learned in my teen years was that I didn't equate happiness with money. I equated money with bigger houses (more cleaning), fake friends, scam artists, etc. Happiness seemed to be connected with how much you give of yourself to others. Happily this early lesson has never proved wrong and even though I struggle sometimes with wanting bigger and better; mostly I'm extremely happy with what I've been blessed with. Sometimes it just takes a pause to realize that my life is very good and I have so much that I have enough to give as well.
