I was trying to think of something to write for this week’s blog entry. I force myself to write at least once a week for my blog so that I don’t become complacent and neglect it while also it’s very important to take that first step, as I mentioned in my previous blog of just going out and doing something because there is never a perfect time to be ready, just go for it.
Anyhow, thinking of what to write was challenging because I didn’t really have much inspiration. However the words ‘money isn’t everything’ popped in my mind. The statement is true, but how does one prove it?
It even says in the bible (I’m paraphrasing now because I’m too lazy to check up the word-to-word verse): It is better for a small house with only vegetables than a big house with a feast full of strife.
I’m sure many poor people would love extra money and that would make them happy, but in all honesty they can always be happy with the little of what they have, because where they may lack in money they may gain in family and community.
It doesn’t matter how much money you have, you will constantly be in pursuit of more. In some cases it’s not a bad desire but for others it is taking away their happiness, time and relationships. It is good to have monents where you spend fervently honing your skills but only for a period. One needs to have a balance of work, play and relaxation.
Money isn’t everything, but having a balance is. Don’t waste too much time on what can make you rich, spend time too on the things that also matter such as your family and friends.
Sometimes you may seek the world, but for one person you may be their world.
