There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t feel immensely grateful for my life.

After all, I was born to a middle-class family and have access to clean running water, shelter, food, and education.

In a world where nearly a billion people live in extreme poverty (less than $1.25 a day), I understand how extraordinarily blessed I am, as are many people I interact with.

That’s why I was particularly interested in tackling today’s question. Because it touches upon something that anyone with a heart and global perspective can relate to.

When so many others struggle, is it really OK to be happy and do meaningful work I love?

As mentioned, if you’d like to join our lending team, we’d love to have you!

One of the things I adore about you, and our community as a whole, is that you care.

Not just about “getting ahead,” but about how your behaviors, attitudes and choices impact others.

Make no mistake, your happiness and joyful contribution in this world does make a positive difference.

And if point #5 in this video gets you fired up, please mark your calendar and MAKE SURE you watch next week’s MarieTV.

What’s coming up is the most personally meaningful and important interview of my career. And it dovetails beautifully with today’s topic – particularly point #5.

Now, I’d love to hear your perspective.

Do you ever feel guilty for being happy and creating a life you love when you know others suffer?

Leave a comment below and let me know.

Remember, thousands of bright souls come here each week for fuel and inspiration so leave as much detail as you can. Your insight may be the spark that ignites a meaningful change for someone else.

As always, thank you so much for reading, watching, and sharing.

With all my love,
