Standard of Living
In light of the growing number of troubled and increasingly desperate people in our society, it seems appropriate to repeat this post which first ran in 2009.
"Thanks" to Janice for sending this item and "Thanks" to my parents who taught me this same lesson growing up.
Your standard of living has very little to do with how much money you make or how many possessions you have. It depends primarily on the way you choose to live your life in each moment.
Your standard of living is not decided by where you came from. It is determined by where you choose to go.
You don't need anyone's permission or assistance to raise your standard of living. You simply must decide to make the very best of who you are and what you have.
Do you wish to live a magnificent life that's overflowing with joy and fulfillment? You can most certainly do that, right here and now, by choosing your attitude, your perceptions, your thoughts and your actions.
Raise your standard of living in every moment by doing something to make your world a more beautiful place. Achieve the very highest standard of living by faithfully following the purpose that lives at your core.
There is always something you can do to improve the quality of your life. Continually seize those opportunities for improvement, and enjoy a rich, rewarding standard of living all the time. --
