What do you value most?

You can buy a house but not a home

You can buy a clock but not time

You can buy a bed but not sleep

You can buy food but not an appetite

You can buy a Doctor but not good health

You Can buy insurance but not safety

That is the problem with life most people try to buy happiness, love and security.

The things that are most valuable to us we cannot buy.  We have to earn them!  They are sometimes instilled in us at a young age and remain our guiding light through adolescents and adulthood.  Some learn it later in life and there are those that even have to learn it the hard way.  The solution is not how you get there but that you keep trying.   We may never get everything we want but continue to push ourselves and try to avoid all the complacency traps life throws at you.   Take them on one issue at a time, for large problems attack it a little piece at a time until you have overcome.
