Exactly! It’s a mistake to equate material wealth with happiness. I wish more people can realize that so I don’t have to explain myself so much… Oh well, I guess I can only do so much trying to make people realize there’s more to life than amassing material wealth.

I hope there are more people who think like you in this world and what a great life! I’ve never really tried gardening before but it sounds like fun! Maybe one day when I have a space…

You’re absolutely right! I feel very fulfilled when I teach actually. Money is just a bonus. I definitely got much more than that :)

Thank you so much for reading and for your kind thoughtful response! I really appreciate it ❤

Also if you’re ever interested in posting stories or pictures of your beautiful plants, you can consider submitting to Weeds & Wildflowers. The author who created that publication is an amazing nature photographer and writer. Would love to see your plants ❤
