Money Can Buy

Tue22Jun10

It’s good to have money and the things money can buy, but it’s good, too, to check up once in a while and make sure that you haven’t lost the things money can’t buy.
-George Horace Lormier

We check our bank passbook to know if we are secure financially. But do we ever check `emotional passbook and balance sheet’? We want to know how rich we are in terms of our money and possessions. But do we ever check how poor we are in terms of assets which we don’t have? Such assets include things such as good health, happy family, goods friends, affectionate children etc.

If you think for a while no amount of money can buy the above assets. In our anxiety to earn money and secure our future, we sacrifice our present. A day will come when we will have enough money but no relationship and health. One day we will realize that we were more busy acquiring material wealth and sacrificed all our emotional possessions.

You need to know that your parents at seventies and children at tens are not going to be like that for long. Your friends circle and the people around you are too valuable to be ignored. Money cannot buy peace of mind and bliss. Money cannot buy true friendship and affection. Money cannot buy the satisfaction of raising a happy family.

Over this weekend list all those things which money cannot buy and check if you have any of them!
