What is “A Better Life?”

A better life may be status, recognition, and material wealth.  A better life could mean community service, family time, soul searching, and spiritual growth.  For some, perhaps it’s having it all — that perfect work/life balance!

(I wish!  I’m no superwoman.  Stopped trying to be one years ago).

How about other parts of the world?

After spending a month with our daughter in Africa, I was struck by their different pace of life.  I seldom saw people rushing.  Her village had no clocks, so being late wasn’t obvious.  They had no electricity, no running water.  By Western standards it would be judged a harsh and primitive life.  But the people seemed happy and generally content.  Who has the saner, better life?  It depends on how you look at it.  We’ve all been given the same 24 hours.
