The New Wealth

There’s a new form of wealth, one you can’t see or taste or touch. You can only hear of it, or experience it yourself. It is not a wealth displayed through cars or jewels or anything that can be measured against traditional riches.

It is in the experience of wealth, the ability for those who accept this ethos to live like they were wealthy rather than just collecting the ephemeral dollars in the bank. It is those gathered life experiences, that APPLICATION of wealth and the freedom it permits…that is the new wealth.

I hope I can remember to enjoy it.

Edit: In fact, I would argue that this is the original wealth, the only kind there has ever been before our culture became obsessed with stuffing our pockets full of green coloured scraps of paper, and instead valued time, friendship, and experience.
