Every Wednesday I will post a practical wisdom thought or suggestion on marriage, parenting, or life. A good goal for bringing more joy, contentment, and happiness to our life is to create memorable experiences. In fact, a research study found that people who spent money on experiences rather than physical things were actually happier than those who focused on purchasing items, whether expensive or inexpensive. Look back over your life and ask, “What happy moments do I really remember with fondness?” I think your answer 95%+ of the time will be your individual and relational experiences.
Hence, design memorable experiences both personally and relationally. Find fresh, exciting individual experiences; create wonderful, new experiences with your spouse; have regular or weekly experiences with your child; and find new sightseeing or vacation experiences. Material things don’t last but memories of experiences last a lifetime.
TODAY: Begin developing your own list of future experiences that you want to enjoy in life either by yourself or with others. (March 8, 2017)
