money matters

“I like to live a peaceful life, I don’t care about my wealth”. That’s what many people say as they grow old. And my brain literally can’t comprehend what they even mean.

They would say “Oh, I don’t want to be rich. I just like to own a small and cozy house with a tiny garden, perhaps with a well, near the mountains and I’d watch how the sun sets everyday while sipping self-made wine and enjoy the life peacefully”.


You can’t possibly own a cozy house near the mountains (or beach or anywhere) without some proper earnings you’ve saved up. Let alone making wine and maintaining a garden.

There is no way (unless you cheat) you could save a large sum of money unless you are successful in what you are doing for living.

In addition, money can buy time. Be it one’s life at critical stage or valuable time with loved ones. Forget about great things, you can sleep several more minutes if you can do make-up in your car before a meeting.

To lead a peaceful life, you need money. How can your life be peaceful if you are broke when your loved ones need major healthcare treatment or what’s the point of peaceful life when your kids are smart enough yet you can’t send them to great universities that would much their talent and skills?

Isn’t it too irony when people say they don’t want money or they don’t want to earn much money while they are craving for a peaceful life?
