I spent a little over 24 hours in D.C. the other week, and while I was there I met some of the richest people in the world. Luckily, they passed some of their good fortune on to me. But before I go on telling this story, let me preface it by saying that the word “rich” has a number of slightly varied definitions, but the only one I’m concerned about is #3, and even more specifically, the latter part of #3, according to Dictionary.com:
I’m not really sure when society began tying money and material possessions into everything, but in my eyes, being rich in “valuable resources” is so much more important than material or monetary wealth. If there is one key thing I’ve learned in my 31 years, it’s that this life was never meant to be driven by the tangible. Being rich in things like life experience, skill, culture, knowledge, compassion, and empathy, will always take you further.
Storytime. This is going to be a long one, so grab a cup of coffee or tea and get comfortable.…33 awesome people like this post
