Money Makes Me Happy

Free to Make My Own Choices
I don't know what people mean by money not making them happy. Maybe I belong to a different breed, or maybe I am just uncommon. Whatever it is, I am happy to be me and have no apologies.

I am happy when I make money. I am happy when I find new ways of making money. I am happy when I write a check or make an online transfer to my church. I am happy when I pay myself. I am happy when I invest. I am happy when I transfer money to my spouse. I am happy when I give my children an allowance. I am happy when I honor my parents, and there, for my siblings, etc. I am happy when I am able to meet all my recurrent expenditures. I am happy when I pay my taxes. All these and more are a privilege. I am happy to be privileged.
"Money won't create success, the freedom to make it will." (Nelson Mandela)
I am happy when I am able to meet a need. I am happy when I am able to put a smile on someone's face. I am happy when I am able to lift someone up. I am happy when I am able to provide a lifeline. I am happy each time I write a check and/or make an online transfer to a charity. I thank God for the privilege. I thank God I am the one giving and not the one in need.
"That’s really what wealth does for you. It gives freedom to make choices." (Oprah Winfrey)

In life, you can only have one of two problems, as it relates to money. You can either have not enough, or you have too much. Whichever you have, it is a challenge. Which one you have is a choice. I choose to have the latter. I choose the problem of too much money. So, I enjoy making money. Sorry, if you have a problem with it. Sorry, if you think it is the devil's tool or property. Sorry, if you think it is vanity. That is your cup of tea. You can make your own choice. Only be happy with it, not envy nor come seeking for help. I sure will not want to be the reason for your defilement.
"Money is not the goal. Money has no value. The value comes from the dreams money helps achieve." (Robert Kiyosaki)
I am happy each time I see my cars. I am happy each time I drive or walk into my community. I am happy each time I get home and at home. I am happy about me today. I am happy about my tomorrow. I am happy. I am blessed, and I'm not sorry or apologetic about it. In fact, I need to make more money. There are more needs to be met. More things to be done. New heights to climb. And, more experiences to enjoy.
"Just living is not enough…one must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower." (Hans Christian Andersen)
It is not money or God. It is not money or holiness. It is not money or heaven. It is not money or happiness. It is not money or humility. It is money and God. It is money and heaven. It is money and honor. It is money and happiness. It is money and a personable character. It is money and humility.
"That good is the enemy of great is not just a business problem. It is a human problem." (James C. Collins)
It is not easy does not mean it is impossible. Easy is a sure way to hell, both in this life and that to come. Life is not easy. Life is not meant to be. "OR" is easy, "OR" is for the average. There is a higher proposition. There is the "AND" proposition. There is a place of purpose. There is a place called, "THERE." It might be hard, but it is not impossible. And, I don't know why you will ever want to live less.
"Life is a cream for the wise, a game for the fool, a comedy for the rich, a tragedy for the poor." (Sholem Aleichem)
You don't have to live limited. You don't have to be chicken minded. You can raise your game. You can be abundance-minded. You can be a possibility-minded. You can be eagle minded. Shake off the "Que Sera Sera" (whatever will be will be). You don't have to die in your comfort zone. You don't have to be limited by that which life throws at you.

There is much more. There is much more to life and living. You can stretch. You can grow. You can create a new reality. Life is not "EITHER OR." Life is about making choices. Life is about seeking for the right and optimum strategy. Life is about harnessing. Life is about living. Life is about having options. And, money gives you options.
"Rising above mediocrity never just happens; it’s always a result of faith combined with works. Faith without works is like gold within the earth. It is of no value until it is mined. A person who has faith but no actions is like a bird that has wings but no feet." (John Mason)
I thank God for the gift of life. I thank God for the gift of health. I thank God for the power to make wealth. It is a privilege, and I am unapologetic. What about you?
