It inspired me ...Picture by Associne.
This is where i lived for most of my youth. In an Apartment. I was very happy. My Mom is divorced and raised 3 kids. She had a very good job, but compared to the States only made as much as working for McDonalds. My Mom is a Saint, she sacrificed for us. She worked hard and still is.
We only lived on what we needed. I would used everything till it fell apart. I remember looking at my shoes with a big hole and saying to my Mother...I need new shoes this month. We walk everywhere in Paris. Cars are for rich people.
I had a very small closet and not a lot of clothes...i would even borrow my Mom's.
Because of my youth, i learn very important lessons...Be grateful for everything you have even if it is small...enjoy life, even small things...be happy for others when they have success in life...Never compete....If you love someone, you don't want them to be a looser .
Only buy things you love...and they need to serve more than one purpose....
That a key to happiness is to work hard.
When Hubby started his first business in Utah, i told him that i would be happy in an Apartment with him. That money was not my priority.
With hubby's second business, i told him that i would be happy in an Apartment with him. That money is not my priority.
With Amber alert GPS now, i still tell him the same.
Houses can burn down, the market can crash...loss of a job. I will still be there with him. Because i learned in France that material things don't make you happy. Your family and relationships does.
No matter what my journey will be, good or bad. I will keep goodness in my heart and stay the same...I keep it simple....It's not about the Journey, but about the person traveling...
Big French bear hugs to all of you!
