Happy Labour Day Kenya!
Today we celebrate the achievements of workers around the country.
This brings in the topic of MONEY. I mean we all work hard to get some money to make our lives a bit more comfortable, right?
We are told time and time again that being rich won’t make us happy. But we can’t help but wonder what it would be like to have all the money in the world. What is the secret to being rich? Maybe it doesn’t have anything to do with money. Let us count all the things that money can’t buy.
Wisdom is not intellect alone. You can’t buy it and you weren’t born with it. To gain wisdom you need to have gone through a fair share of life experiences. It’s unfortunate to think you can have everything you ever wanted in life without working for it. Even animals in the wild have to work hard for their survival. That is true wisdom they’ve earned from their experiences living in the jungle.
2. LOVING FAMILY
I am appreciative of my family. I would be lonely without the people in it, they are my closest friends. My extended family is HUGE. I lost count. But I am lucky to be close with a few relatives. There is a combination of personalities that I am absolutely grateful to have in my life. To my parents, thanks for wonderful experiences and for always supporting me and teaching me the important values in life. To my sister, you know I always got your back. Cheers!
3. EXPERIENCES & TIME
Always appreciate the moment. You can get more money, but you can never get more time. You can always get more luxurious items, but they can never match the memory of seeing a new part of the world. Life is all about making memories. Having experiences gives you wisdom and great memories. All time well spent. You will always remember. There is no point in being alive if you are not living.
4. SUPPORTIVE & TRUE FRIENDS
It is nice to have friends who are there for you when you need them and never fail to support you. This type of friendship is very rare and priceless. There is no price tag to loyalty and respect. It’s not right to feel lonely when you are not alone. Surround yourself with people who love you and are always truly there for you. Always remember that respect is earned and not demanded.
5. LOVE & PASSION
No one can take away your passion. It is what gives you the drive in life. Passion and action makes your dreams into a reality. It is part of who you are and no one can take that away from you.
Love is such a broad topic, but it entails care and kindness. An act of kindness is an act of love and humanity. You can’t buy that.
It is impossible to be happy every minute of the day. You also need the lows, to appreciate the highs. If all the money, luxuries and wealth would somehow simultaneously combust, these are the things I would be grateful to have
Being alive, oxygen and good health are still on the top of the survival list.
What other wonderful things in life can’t you buy?
Keep you posted till next time
