    Good Question. For me, being wealthy means having all the intangibles that bring me peace; the music of my mom’s laughter, smell of the ocean and the visit from song memories long forgotten.

    Possessions can never be truly ‘possessed’ as they wear you out more than anything else. This may sound trite, but it reflects what I’ve seen and lived. My GrandMa with her 7 kids was far wealthier and happier filling her kids’ bellies with laughter than her neighbor with the 2 cars, maids and china cabinets of tears.

    Thanks for sharing Ouleen! I love your definition! Especially the line – “Possessions can never be truly ‘possessed’ as they wear you out more than anything else.”
