Just Musing

November 15th, 2006 at 02:39 pm

What is it all about anyhow? Save money, retire, and try to enjoy what is left. There is more to life than just money and success as the world sees it. Is my material success all encompassing of who I am or how successful as a person?

What is any of these things I own really worth? It will all break, fade, or passs away over time. Nothing of me or mine will remain!

What does,"is it worth it?", mean? Is there anything worth it? Whatever "it" is!
Just musing on a somber day. Just thinking a little too deeply perhaps. Perhasps where ignorance is bliss it truly is folly to be wise!

    Hehe. I think it's wonderful and perhaps even quite necessary for all of us who are interested in personal finance to have these moments of soul searching.

    In fact, I find myself doing just that in short spurts quite often....

    In part, I think the real worth in all of this lies in not wanting to suffer anymore.... Many of my friends don't see it that way. Perhaps they're not "suffering", I don't know. Therefore, they just want to "get rich" for what money can afford them in material goods. So, their strategy is ultimately to spend. Even when they're saving, the only reason why they're saving is so they can spend it on something they can't buy without doing so.

    I, on the other hand, have experienced what I think it means to suffer when one lacks the financial means to live well. And because I don't want to suffer anymore, my strategy is ultimately to save. Not just to save money, but to save myself. I don't want to feel helpless again.

    Something like that. Big Grin

    Yes, there may be times when ignorance is bliss. But... I'd rather be a fool and fall with my eyes wide open than to stand firm on grounds which I understand nothing about.

    A life worth living is one that you enjoy every moment and gives you peace of mind, and if that mean financial security for the future or the happiness of the present, that's what I pursuit. I live by this theory and it helps immensely in slowing down my spending. Knowning that everything is transient makes me treasure the things that held meaning in my life more. Quite frankly, chasing after the Jones or impress others with material posession are ridiculous in my eyes because things are worthless unless they held some special meaning. Sometime, I take a step back and look at this society as a whole and it makes me sick. What's the point of blindly chasing after empty consumerism?

    Live conternted and stop chasing after empty things that are in the end meaningless. I guess I must continue to soul search! One day at a time is how I'll take careof things!
