– Look at my hat, everyone! It’s a real hat!

– Put your stupid hat down, dearest. You look douchey without it on.

“He who loses money, loses much; He who loses a friend, loses much more; He who loses faith, loses all.”

–Eleanor Roosevelt

“Happiness is not in the mere possession of money; it lies in the joy of achievement, in the thrill of creative effort.”

–Franklin D. Roosevelt

Talk about a power couple! Eat your heart out, Shelly O. and Barack, George and Amal & Justin (no, not Beebs) and Sophie!

I’ve been thinking a lot about money these days (haven’t we all?), and when I saw Frankie and Ellie R.’s take on the green-eyed monster, I knew I had to post on it.

In terms of Eleanor’s quote, I firmly believe she has hit the monster right in the eye. Personally, I have lost much and many $$$ over the last few years. I’ve lost a few friends over that time, too. However, somehow and in some strange way, I have not lost my faith. And so, like Mr. Frost’s road less traveled by, “that has made all the difference.”

With respect to her esteemed husband’s quote, I also wholeheartedly agree. Even at my lowest of low money-fueled doldrums, it has been the achievement of creative efforts that has helped buoy me in choppy, shark-infested waters.

So thank you, Mr. and Mrs. R.! You’ve reminded me that, although a poor bastard, I can still seek happiness elsewhere (though let’s call a spade a spade, guys…there are worse things in life than having a boatload of money).
