As I walk through my local shops and chat with people I encounter, there is so much hustle and bustle and stress. And so much of the stress is caused by things. I just wish that more people realize that happiness is not in things… it is inside of us.
So I found this quote, and I thought it was a good one to share as you and your family enjoy this holiday season.
The best way for a person to have happy thoughts is to count his blessings and not his cash. ” – Author Unknown
I hope that you take these words to heart this season. I hope you are able to enjoy all of the things you get to do. I hope you find peace and beauty around you and remember that the most important things in life aren’t things.
I’ll be taking a few days off to spend some quality time with my family, but I plan to resume posting here on December 30. While I’m gone be sure to explore the archives for lots of money-saving ideas. And remember you can subscribe to Northern Cheapskate or follow us on Facebook to get the latest updates.
