Ever get caught up in the rush to accumulate worldly goods? I think we all do, and sometimes lose the plot.what exactly is it that we are struggling to accumulate? Material things that we often are too busy hustling for to enjoy? I mean you work 50 hours a week and you are saving all your money for retirement, so you go to the crappy chinese buffet for $15 a head instead of that which cost $45. Truly to whose detriment?
If you died tomorrow, all that you have put aside, who is going to spend it? Do you really need to work all those hours? I have been guilty of working long hours, but a lot of my luxury items and holidays were during the said period.
This post came to me as a result of watching cnn with my husband. The king of Saudi Arabia died, King Abdullah – RIP. He was worth about $20 billion – he was buried in the plain standard white cloth for muslims. We come with nothing we also leave with nothing. At least from my own limited understanding, as no one has come back from the dead to tell us whether or not they needed the stuff they acquired on earth on the other side.
I was watching documentaries on Narcos. Narcos are pretty much organised crime cartels (think drugs) in Mexico. The industry is worth an estimated $40 billion a year. Now these guys get gunned down and they request to be buried in bullet proof coffins, with their SUVs etc. All of the mausoleums (i believe thats the word) have huge crosses on them and this section of the Juarez cemetary might put some of the mansions on Banana Island in Lagos to shame. Jaurez, Mexico is the most dangerous city in the world while El paso, Texas across the border is the safest.
An instagram page – “tagthesponsors” has come up to out THOTs aka high end call girls who steadily display their designer goods with no tangible source of income on instagram. Is this living on the other side of the coin? After all some people say they sleep with bfs and husbands for free so whats wrong with getting paid?
I guess my primary question is are you living to work, working to live? Somewhere in the middle? Learning how to enjoy life?
The giveaway is still under the choices post.
I woke up to this view this morning. Snow is beautiful but messy when you have to walk or drive.
Enjoy your weekend.
