A Treasure Worth Chasing

While attending a farewell lunch this week for a friend who was leaving our company I found myself deep in thought. Everyone shared stories and fond memories of their relationship, some dating back 25 years or more. I listened to their stories and we all laughed and cried together.

One thing I noticed through this experience is that what was better than the money they made or the places they traveled was the experiences they shared.

I realized how lucky I was to have friends that were rich with experience. It also opened my eyes to the fact that chasing an experience is more valuable than chasing money! Money is short lived and empty. Experience is rich with knowledge, strength, empathy, compassion and so much more.
