In today’s society #money runs everything. It controls almost everything in our lives, even making good people bad... all in the pursuit of money. It’s not pursuit of family, happiness, spirituality or love anymore.... it all comes second to #money. If you don’t have it, or don’t put it first; there’s “something wrong with you”. You “can’t live without money”. But in that, I find my greatest personal conflict; I rebel against the idea that more money is better. Because I don’t believe that being able to #buy things makes me a better person, or provides my children with a better opportunity at life. It might give them a better chance at certain things.... but are those things what’s best for them? Yes, I want to be able to pay my bills, put food on the table, have experiences with my family. But I don’t want the #newestcar or the #nicesthouse or fancy things. I don’t want to be able to spoil my children, I want to LIVE with my children. I’m not putting down anybody who wants to live that way, or thinks that money is the answer. I want what #moneycantbuy which is literally, the things that money can’t buy. Because I’m the end, all you have is your life! The #time spent with family & friends. The #memories made, the #fights that were had, the #heartbreak, the #love, the #regrets & #willneverforgets. If I make living in this #moderndayratrace more difficult because I don’t put money first #sobeit. The time will come when I’m to die, just like everybody else, rich, poor & in between. But at that moment money doesn’t matter, it never did and I’d much rather be laying there dying with all my memories, not my things.
