I love the best things in life. My child’s hug, kisses from a puppy, the feel of my partners hand around mine, the sound of a baby’s giggle, precious time spent with ageing family members…
I really am all for those wonderful, irreplaceable, priceless things that money just cannot buy. They inspire me, they motivate me, they stay captured in my mind for days, and they are my priority.
But here’s the thing. Coco herself said it best;
“The Best Things in Life are Free. The Second Best are Very Expensive.”
I love a lot of things, and a lot of those things seem very damn expensive.
My husband asks me often what the difference is between a Target handbag and a Chanel handbag. And I just stare at him, because if you don’t understand without being told, you’ll never grasp it, and that’s just sad.
It comes down to this.
Most of us really do value those things is life that cannot be purchased, but there is some really great stuff that can be purchased, and it’s up to those of us that can appreciate the value to keep that train rollin’ along.
I for one intend to continue to appreciate those second best things. Every. Single. Day.
