I felt sad when I was selling off my gear at 1st. I was also mad that I HAD to. Then as my babies started shipping all over the world & I saw how happy the recipients were, I realized I was ok with it. It wasn't the end of the world. Those beauties are just stuff. I can always get more later if I choose. Even Kate got in on the action as we took truckloads of her old clothes & toys to Goodwill. She said other boys & girls need toys & clothes. The look in her eyes just made it all real. She had true joy in giving her old things away. She jumped up & down giggling. She knows she has plenty and she's happy to share.
    So....true success for me would to be more like Kate!
    Awesome perspective.

    How many times have you heard someone say,
    "If I had his money, I could do things my way."
    But little they know, that it's so hard to find,
    One rich man in 10, with a satisfied mind

    Once I was wading in fortune and fame
    Only thing that I cared for - to get a start in life's game
    Then suddenly it happened, I lost every dime
    But I'm richer by far, with a satisfied mind.

    Money can't buy back your youth when you're old
    A friend when you need one, or a love that's grown cold
    The wealthiest person, is a pauper at times
    Compared to that man, with a Satisfied mind

    When my life is over, my time has run out
    My friends and me loved ones, I'll leave them no doubt
    But one things for certain, when it comes my time
    I'll leave this old world, with a satisfied mind.

    Satisfied Mind

    What ALWAYS will be constant is PEOPLE, and your relationships to them.
    Then again, a few superficial relationships plus money, cars, power, and big homes can make for some quite lively times.
    If something is too hard to do, then it's not worth doing. You just stick that guitar in the closet next to your short-wave radio, your karate outfit and your unicycle and we'll go inside and watch TV.

    Family and friends- people that you care about and that care about you- will never go away <until of course one of you expires LOL>, and your RELATIONSHIPS in this life to the people whom you value are all that really matters...
    All very well said. It makes me think that success is treating the people you care about in such away that they would like to see more of you.

    This is true...Money may not add years to your life but it will ad life to your years.. One thing money does is give one more choices..The more choices one has , the happier one can be..But not always.
