You know the routine. Wake up and get going. Start the day programmed to accomplish our task list. That may be heading out the door to work or getting the kids out of bed and out the door to school--MAYBE BOTH! On top of that, we have all been working on saving money, planning for the future, and becoming debt free. All these goals should be our focus; however, I believe, as I'm sure you do, it's just as important to be grateful for what we do have and realize that:

"Life is too short..."
"...to not live the way you want.  I don't mean that you have to buy everything you want. I mean that you must be happy with your day to day life. Make the changes needed to live your life more fully."
"...to worry about money every single day! It's important to watch your spending but destructive to let the worry wear you down."
"...to argue with the people you love." Arguing with your loved ones creates tension for everyone involved.
"...to forget to be grateful for every single blessing we do have. We all have many, but our problems seem to preoccupy our minds, driving out appreciation. Take the time to smell the roses and thank God for the sense of smell and the delight to the eye."
"...to stay in a job that sucks the life out of you. Someone once said, find something that makes you happy and the money will follow."
"..to short to let money cause you to argue with your loved ones, and its too short to worry about money all the time. I feel its important to create a life that you want and love every single day....why are we working if we can't enjoy it."
"...to not spend time with your children."
"...to not take care of yourself."
"...to not spend time with your spouse."
"...to worry about choices other people make in their lives."
"...to make stupid purchases. Think of all the things you have purchased over the years. Were they a good investment or did you just waste your money? I try to think of that when I make a purchase, will it be something I will regret purchasing in the future. I still make some dumb purchases, but not nearly as many as I would if I did not have this philosophy."
