My husband and I are Pink Floyd Fans and one of my favourite songs is ‘Money’ which is about how society puts money above all else. So when I saw this week’s writing prompt ‘What’s enough Money?’ from Denyse Whelan Blogs, I immediately thought do we ever have enough?
Unfortunately, society places so much importance on money for comfort and security reasons. We have become so obsessed with owning a home with a mortgage that is barely manageable the latest car, holidays, fashion, electronic gadgets, the biggest screen TV . We are working so hard for a lifestyle we can’t afford to enjoy – so what is the point?
If it was your last day on earth, I don’t think you would be thinking about how much money you have. Possibly you will be thinking of all the things you had in life that money can’t buy and perhaps wishing you had concentrated more on those than being a slave to the dollar.
People waste money on buying lotto tickets or gambling hoping to be the next big winner. In fact, there are some who have one the lottery more than once and have frittered it away just as quickly.
There are many things in life that money can’t buy – health, happiness and a feeling of contentment.
So let’s concentrate on 3 things you need that Money can’t buy
Self-respect and respect from others can’t be bought. You need to earn it by living a life of example. Respecting who you are as a person and what you represent. If you don’t have respect for yourself then how can you expect others to respect you?
Sure you can be wined and dined but true love can’t be bought. Love comes from within and we really don’t know why we love some people yet have no connection with others. The love of a partner, family and friends is more valuable than having all the materialistic things that money can buy.
Purpose in Life
How many times have you seen people killing themselves in a job they hate because they don’t know their purpose in life. Finding your purpose comes from within. Recognising and learning who you are and how you can make a difference to yourself and those around you.Stop looking for the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow and appreciate life.Click To Tweet
