The Best Things In Life Are Free


Sometimes in life it's easy to forget what matters the most to us. We've all been there - wishing we had more money, right? Looking at others who appear to have more than you - a newer car, a better paid job, fancy YSL makeup - and wishing that was you. It's so easy to get caught up in the hype of money - just look at all the power and money that rich and famous people have - it must make them happy, surely? Who are we to know that? Having money does not entitle you to happiness. As the old saying goes 'money can't buy you love' and there's lots of other things it can't buy you either. I am not trying to sound bitter or jealous towards others who may have more money than me - I truly am not as I'm in a happy place in my life. I have very recently started working full time but the past few months I have been only working part time meaning the money is hardly rolling in but it doesn't mean I am not happy.
I know that money makes the world go round. We need to work hard to earn it and we need it to keep a roof over our heads and food in our bellies. Thinking about it a bit more in depth, I know it makes me happy to buy myself beauty treats and a new pretty dress but it doesn't make me as happy as the free things I have make me. I am very lucky to have a boyfriend who I adore and a close family who I know will help me if I ever need help, no matter what. Next time you're feeling down about money, or wishing you could afford certain things - just think about how lucky you are to have what you already have in your life. Whether that be your best friend, partner or your pet - I'm pretty certain it will be something that money can't buy.
What's the most important thing to you - that money can't buy? x

  1. What a fab post! It makes you remember to never take the simple things in life for granted

  2. So true! It is easy to get caught up in the little shopping high, or the latest MAC collection - but I think too, that these are all just fun little distractions from the things we should all hold dear and sacred - Family and friends but also the totally free and personal things like integrity and being proud of yourself.
    Thanks you for this little reminder!

  4. This is such a lovely post, and really so true! It's not drawers full of expensive make-up or Diptyque candles that essentially makes us all happy, it's definitely the free things from life.
