So, having a conversation with a friend the other day. To give you a perspective, he’s the type of person, that no matter what he has, he wants more, needs more. Now, I am the exact opposite, I feel, that stuff is stuff, value has NOTHING to do with money. Value, is what something, means to you. I have plenty of things, that have no dollar value, but are worth more than anything to me.
Value, to me, at the end of the day, is not about the stuff you buy, and the things you have and give to each other, but what’s left at the end of the day.
I don’t buy ridiculous things for my daughter on the holidays, I spend time with her, we do things, that may or may not cost money, that has more value than any toy she’ll get, break, lose, or forget.
I value the friends I have, because I don’t have to be going out spending money all the time to have fun, sometimes it’s as simple as a conversation.
We are losing that part of society, the social part, everything is me,me,me,me.
I need this, I need that… no you don’t.
Money is what I am getting to, how can we place such importance, on something, that tomorrow, can have no value, by no fault of your own. I hear the argument, that won’t happen, that can’t happen. It has, it can, and it will.
To be fair, yes, you still get paid in money, the utility company still accepts it, and you can go buy everything you need.
It is only a matter of time, when the division of wealth and resources, will make what you have, useless to those who have everything. You can’t support their greed with your earnings, and soon, you as with most, will be disposable. When the elite want their gourmet dinner, that food will come from your mouth, and the mouths of those you love. Once you have no more to give, they will find a way, to take what you cannot give, which is all you are.
When you can’t buy what you need to live, the value comes not from the worthless money you’ve wasted your existence chasing, but what you are capable of without it.
Educate yourself, learn to create what you need, not try to figure out what else you have left for them to take.
