Living richly is not necessarily a matter of living extravagantly. Living richly is living with purpose, with meaning, and with authentic joy in every moment.
You don't need a certain set of circumstances to enjoy a life of richness. What it takes is a profound sense of gratitude for the life you have.
On this very day, in this very moment, you can live as richly as anyone. You can give great meaning and fulfillment to this moment by simply appreciating the fact that you're in it.
Life's endless goodness and richness surround you even now. Open your awareness to the positive possibilities and choose to live them.
Be truly rich, not by virtue of what you have, but by how much genuine meaning you give to each moment. Be truly rich, and let life's goodness freely and unceasingly flow through all you do.
