“…The things people really want are love, connection, and purpose.”

That is indeed true wealth. It’s our family, our faith in Life, and our driving motivation — what makes us want to be here on earth.
First, love means we are all created to do something for others. Whether it is our daughter, our dog, or the doorman — everyone needs kindness and love.
Then, we must dedicate ourselves to something positive and contributive, where our soul makes a difference. That can be an organization, a person, or simply our commitment to a way of being.
Love and Purpose. A fine way to live, and, enough to work on for every moment!
