For the past 2hours, i was blog hopping from my baby's links.
Was so fun. So fun to kpo around.
Then i came across one post. A post about a diamond ear ring worth USD28k wore by someone obviously younger than me. I pondered for a second. Then i asked myself , did i jus feel nothing ? I answered myself , YES. i felt nothing. No green with envy, no purple , no nuts.
You're born into this world, with a fotune of millions under your family name. Your dad knows every single high ranking person in the country who is temasek holdings manager or wadsoever.(who cares!) Your money is like a fountain. Keeps flowing.
In the past, I'm always jealous of other people who were born wealthy and could live a good life without worries, troubles, and i often asked GOD. Is he fair ?
And God answered my prayers. He said :"yes I'm , in fact , very".
I asked :" WHY ?"
God: " you'll understand..."
Yup i understood at last. Its never too late to understand such a profound question.
God is fair.
He can give all the wealth in the world to the guy. He can give him all the diamonds, all the expensive stuffs to him. But God given me has the same share. God gave me all the wealth in my friends. Expensive to the pricetag written, priceless. God gave me love. God gave me strength. God gave me comfort. God gave me hopes. God gave me family. God answered my prayers(everyday). God gave me baby.
Who on earth doesnt want to have a good life , be rich and live without worries ? Why is money so important ? because, in this world, at this point in life, on the 21st century. MONEY makes the world goes round ! The fact that money can buy EVERYTHING except love, friendship, family bonds, etc ( notice that all are feelings?).
In short money cant buy feelings.
But money can buy everything other single fucking little thing.
Money can buy TIME. Example : You got school at 8am. Usually you take about 10mins to get ready and be off for school. On this very unlucky day, your alarm went off at 730am. You know you'll be late for sure. So you decided to sleep for another 10mins and take a cab to school.
So in simple terms. You're buying sleep time with your cab fare.
Thats the power of money nowadays.
BUT SO WHAT IF YOU HAD ALL THE MONEY IN THE WORLD WITHOUT HAPPINESS ?
without love ? without ture friends ? without an aim in life ? without brains ?
You may have a diamond that worth USD28k = SGD60k( approx). But i got my baby who is priceless ! No money on earth is enough to exchange for my baby. How about that ?
You may agrue that you could find a baby yourself too, but i could say that i could earn that much money too ! hehh.
In the past, i used to spend hundreds in a day. Used to be quite well off. But eunice taught me something. She said in an aunty manner shaking her legs :" got money also cannot anyhow spend mah". At first, i disagree. What i know was that money is only used for spending, spending and spending. I often buy things i fancy at first sight. And till i reach home, i realised i dont really like it lots. And often dump new stuffs one side.
I guess, it was God who is the one who enlighten me perfectly and truely. Teaching me the ways of life.
To me, besides baby,family, friends.
The most important factor in my life is myself. As long as i did not do something against my conscience. Its clear. I'll be able to face myself. I believe in karma - what goes around comes around.
In life. Its always a battle. A battle within oneself.
I came into this world with nothing. And going to leave the world with nothing. (this post is not refering to anyone in particular. Dont be offened if you're a rich ass. Jus take it i'm jealous or wadsoever which makes you feel happy ) cheers (:' P.S : Eunice , my blog not story book for goodness sake !
