“The best things in life are free” is an ancient proverb which has a deep hidden meaning. This proverb relates to all the things money cannot buy. This proverb is closely related with the proverb “money cannot buy happiness”. When we are born on this Earth, the almighty blesses us with a full – fledged family. This family consisting of our parents, grandparents, uncles, aunts and siblings is a blessing showered by the almighty on each and every individual.
However rich an individual might grow, he cannot buy these relations. This is a universal fact known to one and all. Another important fact is that one cannot buy happiness.
Happiness comes as a result of appreciating smaller things in life instead of crying for bigger things in order to gain happiness. An individual who is alone in his 10,000 square feet mansion can never be as happy as an individual who stays with his family and kids in a 1000 square feet home. A BMW is useless if you have no one beside you whereas you can stay happy travelling in a public transport if you are with the people you love.
The proverb “The best things in life are free” also stresses the importance of another significant fact; it is extremely essential for any individual to spend time with his family apart from working all day long.
What is the use of money which does not even permits you to spend quality time with the people you love. When you will be left alone, the money will not sooth your heart, it is your family, your friends; the people you love who will prove to be instrumental in bringing out the happiness from your inside.
An expensive bed cannot help you to sleep peacefully and on the other hand an individual sleeping on the road side can have an amazing sleep; the reason is sleep will not come with money, it will come with peace of mind and this peace of mind comes free.
Yes! money does help in buying things which can be instrumental in bringing about happiness but money cannot buy family and family love. It is god’s gift and it comes for free. The deep meaning that this proverb tries to explain is that instead of searching happiness by the means of monetary pleasures, it is essential to understand the fact that God has already gifted the best thing to all of us without any cost; in form of free blessings which every individual is endowed with.
So it is essential that one always remains happy and content with his or her life because you can buy things but not the best things. Life on Earth will be heavenly once an individual understands and abides by this simple fact of life.
