Life is hard, life is difficult, life is challenging... but above all of these, still Life is Beautiful... The picture shows that even if we lack money life isn't that bad, because what is essential is free. Like, love, friends. sleep, air. We don't need to worry about no having a lot of money to spend for a holiday. A simple picnic with a family just at the backyard will do. a weekend off with the children to go to the park to fly kite is awesome. Fixing the bike together and biking after. How about fishing? In the absence of outdoors why not play charade with the kids or scrabble. Turn off the computer and have fun time watching movies with the entire family with pop corn. You can discuss this movie or the moral lesson of the movie while having dinner. This one is nice, how about videoke singing together. Let us not deprive our children of stories to tell their kids when they grow up. Let us give them the "experiences" of what life is. Simple and yet free. Let us not deprive ourselves to be happy... and love life. Thanks for the Global Healing Exchange for the photo.

@Mavic123456 I agree. There are plenty of things we can do that doesn't cost a cent. But in saying all that, being in a good financial position is nice too.

How right you are ?Money cannot buy happiness. Good health of family and a problem free life ensures wellbeing of an individual.As you had pointed out, you need not spend money and go to different countries or be extremely rich to derive happiness from life.Every day is a gift given to us by God and we must be very thankful for HIS countless blessings.

Yes, everything is free and free is the best. Though having no money can cause unhappiness too, that's why we need to work also. Yes, God is good.

You are absolutely right. Money comes and goes and we do not have to be its slaves. Time spent with our loved ones is the most simple and yet the most rewarding thing we can do for our family and friends. Time is invaluable and we all remember the good moments spent with them and what we did, what everyone said and how they felt about all of us being together.The best gift!!!

Life has been seen, felt and described in many form depending upon the present circumstances as well as nature of individual. Still as u told, life is precious and it should be dealt with care. Regarding money, its perhaps the biggest enemy of a happy life. Sometimes, we feel money is required, but no one is sure, how much money he/she needs. In fact no one knows how long he is going to live and hence cant even say, what should be the size of his saving. But the role of making money makes you too much mechanical in life and you will lack emotion and even care. If you are true to your business, money will come in a very stipulated manner and your life can be beautiful too. Thank you.

yes, I agree. Money is not the biggest enemy of happy life. It is actually a good friend of happiness. Who would not be happy if you have money to spend for happiness, although spending money can be substituted by some simple things that will make one happy.

Good day Mavic123456, Indeed, the essential things in life are free. However, I think what is important for me now is to be back again at the tract. I mean to have and be employ again in the same type of job that I left about a year ago. As I really want to win that same type of job again to avail a big amount of salary then. And I am wishing that God will answer my prayers and petition very very soon.

If money can bring all us we want then why is not a rich happy at all the time. The happiness in our family really depends on how we manage things. Managing the things or planning well about your life makes life so simple with lot of happiness. This is what every one lack I hope things make us to learn those matters soon. Happy Mylotting

Your post is something that we should always be having in our hearts and minds. I think that life would never be that hard if we would take each trial as a challenge to make us a better person and have the courage to achieve our goals no matter how difficult it could be.
