Money and Us

What defines us as a person? Most of us will have different answer to that question because we all come from different background of ducation level, surrounding, and way of life.

2020 has been one hell of year. 2020 is the year people find out what they are made of and what they can over come. 2020 has been a year of self discovery, trying new things and finding new hobbies. As the world continues its battle to contain the  spread of the coronavirus pandemic, we have find it very hard to remember a time before COVID-19 and social distancing wasn’t top of mind.

The lives of many people around the globe has come to a complete screeching halt earlier this year, with the virus forcing most to stay at home, order necessities online and avoid physical interaction to help further prevent its spread.
We are all searching for a little bit of sunshine or a rainbow at the end of this. Right now happiness, joy, laughter and the peace of mind is all we are searching for these days.

There are time of sorrow and moment of darkness that we have no power over. But to get through those situations we need something to aim for. It could be a hobby an academic achievement or something else. We ofen find ourselves searching for this things all in the wrong places.

According to the Web in Google search Happiness is a state, not a trait; in other words, it isn’t a long-lasting, permanent feature or personality trait, but a more fleeting, changeable state. Therefore, it is safe to say money doesn’t buy happiness, while we often spend our lifetime chasing it, even taking chances sometimes that involves high risk even death.

For it we spend more time with coworkers than our love ones. We trade 40 hours a week if not more, in return to tax taken off, social security and medicaid all while getting little back. In action the importance we give money have a lot of similarities with blood. It enable leisure, pleasure and it’s a way of life.

The real thing is money don’t buy happiness but it facilitate it. I’ve never seen someone crying on a speed boat or heading to Dubai in a private jet, while they might not be happy which one will you rather be, the one above or the one punching the clock?
Like the song says “we are not happy where we are. There is greener grass in the neighbors yard a bigger house and a faster car.” Human nature we were made for this and will spend our lifetime chansing it one way or another. Weather it’s through hard work or hardly working, we gotta make a living and regardless of our income we always want the best, specially what we can’t afford.
