A couple of weeks ago I bought a new baseball cap from the “Life is good” store for running in the hot arizona sun. I love the products and have always thought those guys were brilliant for coming up with this happy stuff.

It makes me smile just looking at it. I started to wonder why my life was so good and how it got that way. I believe most of it comes from the following life lessons or core beliefs I believe in and live.

Learn to want what you have

Before making a decision ask and listen for guidance

Refuse to waste anything

Be original and authentic

Pay yourself first and put it in your savings account
