It costs money to eat. People often say, “Money is the root of all evil.” This could be true in some cases but money in the right hands can do many good things. Money is a tool. Money is a resource. Money is used to exchange value in a common format. Money can relieve stresses that come along with life. It can allow you to be more generous and do things for other people. You can donate. You can take that dream vacation. You can buy goods that will make your life better. Money will not make you happy but what you do with it can increase the power and quality of your life. About half the world lives on less than $5.50 a day (1) so be grateful and be generous with what you have.
