Riches

Bought 4 of King’s books for re/reading (The Stand, Four Past Midnight, Skeleton Crew & Insomnia)

Wealth by bella-elizabetta

Just a Little Too Much?
When one already has 18 million dollars. Yet does not use or share that wealth for good. But says “I just want to make a little more money-lah”. By that same definition, do we really know what are our actual needs & wants? What can we actually do without – things that won’t improve our lives in any visible way other than the immediate thrill of owning it (whatever ‘it’ may be). Knowing clearly what your needs & wants are without over-focusing on paper which we cannot take us when we pass this life.

Aiming for the Best Success
That being said, we (should) aim for the best we can achieve in all we do. To know our goals & set about working towards them. To have faith & belief that everything happens for a reason that we may or may not know. To pick ourselves up whenever we fall & see how we can do better. To constantly evolve & devolve. To constantly be challenged & grow. To spend time positively nurturing not only ourselves but those around us. To use our riches to be the difference.

When Things Inevitably Still Fail
Yet there will be times when things fail. To know that not all our best-laid plans/ideas are meant to be. To know when we need to call it quits as it’s really not in our own best interests in the long-sighted future. That it’s OK to not complete every single thing 100%. And to use our failings as lessons on how to better handle situations, others & ourselves. To appreciate successes & successes disguised as failures. As Emily once said “Falling is easy, picking yourself up again is difficult.”

Question
How can we best use riches (in any form) to make a difference where it matters?

  1. I think the thing is to find a purpose for our money and to invest it rather than to spend it all over the place on a variety of causes. Let our money follow our hearts.

  2. @Sandy: great tips on investing & finding purpose. especially like your thoughts on money following our hearts – 1st time I’ve heard of that! =)
