So many of the best things in life, after you have food, safety and shelter covered, are free. What are these things?

I'll start by mentioning nature and the outdoors. I am never bored and always rich, knowing I can walk around outside. I can enjoy mountains, canyons, rivers, streams, ocean shores, lakes, deserts, meadows, forests...all for free.

I may not have the gas to get to all of them all the time, but I can pretty much always find some way to enjoy a sunset, a horizon and a trail, wherever I may be.

What other good things in life are free?

Yes, the obvious first: Air. People take it for granted but it is the most important thing we need to survive. We can't survive more than minutes without it. And let's not forget that many struggle every minute for breath, such as those with cystic fibrosis or pulmonary disease.

When I got outside, I inhale deeply the clean, fresh air and feel very thankful indeed.

Water. It isn't "free" where I live, sadly, and I really believe that clean water should be free for all. A basic human right. I do a water meditation every time I shower. So thankful for clean water, especially since I am a water element.

Yes, Jilly, I agree with you that Planet Earth is free for all of us, an abundant source of wellness. Like you, I appreciate and honor the earth and enjoy being surrounded by nature. My favorite places are near the ocean and under the trees.

Knowledge is free for those who seek. One can gain knowledge from books, the Internet, other humans and just by pondering and meditating.

Ooo, knowledge! An excellent one, Lori!

When asked, Dan said, 'Thunderstorms.' :-)

To me anything in nature is special and beautiful.

If you love unconditionally you essentially give it freely. That is the best thing in life.

I love how I can find so many gorgeous places to walk along the waterfront here in San Diego for free. I've also been canoeing, which (if you have the canoe) is also totally free.

NAPS! I love naps, and they are totally free. If you have a place to lie down and close your eyes, you can nap. You can nap at home or in a park.

Naps are truly underrated.

The only thing that I can think of that does not have a cost is my imagination. I always worry about the cost of everything in relation to my time. If I could only buy more time!

Jilly,

I was going to say anything having to do with nature, a sunset, stary-night, snuggling, a smile at a stranger or even a compliment to a significant other, friend or even someone you don't even know.

A woman that didn't know me came right up to me and said, "You have the most beutiful smile. Did you get any "work" done?

It took me by surprise. I've neve had someone compliment my smile, like a stranger or anything. But I'm like, "Oh, thank you. No, I guess it just came out that way from the beginning." smile

Maybe she was a dentist or something, but it was really nice.

Karen, compliments are wonderful! And Jilly naps are the most awesome things in the world And Valerie isn't the imagination great? I just interviewed a 7th grader who told me using her imagination was like "watching a movie in her head." And Debbie I always think it's a miracle when I see "nature" since I live in the middle of a huge metropolis. When butterfly floats by my window in the summer time, I'm like WOW. And you can't buy moments like that.

I love public libraries, but they aren't exactly "free" when you consider tax and all that.

True Leah, but we pay the taxes whether we use the libraries or not. So we may as well use them, and it doesn't cost us a cent more to do so. :-)
