So I used to want to be rich…not like Paris Hilton rich, but live in a $1,000,000 house in Reid rich (For those of you who don’t live in Canberra this means I would be living in a 3 bedroom house really close to the city). I would also shop for full priced items at Marcs and Country Road (right now it’s only sale items for me) and drive a new volvo. Now this might not sound like being rich to you, but to a girl who grew up in Tuggeranong these would be the signs that she’d made it.
If you’d asked me a couple of years ago about what my goals were I wouldn’t have told you money, but deep down I secretly would have wanted to be that woman driving an expensive European car. But recently things have changed, actually I guess I’ve changed. I don’t know what has set this change in motion, but now what I really want is what I already have…my basic needs met (food, shelter, etc), a successful business, good relationships and time to enjoy those relationships. It’s funny how I almost let my goals rob me of what I’d already achieved.
Here is an interesting article about money making you happy.
