In life some of us base our social status/place in life by what job you have, how much money you earn, how many cars and how big your house is. Also the main focus seems to be on what we don’t have instead of what we do have.
But what about self-worth and life meaning??
The words SELF WORTH say it all it’s about YOU as a person not you as a person with certain things added on. What you have to offer and contribute to your own life through just being your true self. You weren’t born with a pocket full of Benjamin’s, a wardrobe full of red bottoms and 6 bedroom house. You was born with a heart and mind which is capable of loving, caring, to make other smile and support others. You were also born into a family may it be big or small and yes you can’t always rely on family 100% but my point is you have them already. They are there to love you and support you!!
So when will people realise that the precious, valuable and priceless things you already have inside you and around you. You can’t go to the store and buy them!
Lets talk about money!
Money is an outside influence which can change people, cause arguments and even make people forget about morals and values. Money is an exchange for something else, so one material for in exchange for something else material. This to me is a temporary feeling, like when you buy a new pair of shoes you can’t wait to wear them but then after a while the novelty has worn off. But something like love can be a lasting powerful feeling, yes it can wear off but not in my eyes true love doesn’t weaken.
You can’t buy love, trust, honesty and loyalty so why do you need money to make you feel good?
Now I am not saying that we don’t need money because we do and if I suddenly I was a millionaire of course I would take the money. Money does make life easier as we all know, but it doesn’t make life happier or fulfilling. Convenience isn’t always the best route and doesn’t have the best outcomes.
So what about the whole job/work/career/business aspect, now yes we see the place we get out income from as VALUABLE because it pays the bills and you are part of a business. The main point of working is to earn money so you can live also we do need something to do with our time.
But don’t let your job or having no job define you as a person!!!
Yes it can mess with how we feel as a person you may have a job where you feel you are not in a high enough position. You may have a job where your one of the people with power, or you may not even be working. Yes people get enjoyment out of their jobs/businesses and most of the times if you own your own business you are probably a lot happier than working for someone else. But what you have to remember is yes we all need to work in some shape or form but we are more than just money.
We are somebody’s daughter, son, mother, father and we can contribute to our own and others lives by realising that you are very valuable already. You have a lot to give in your life aside from work and there is more to life to appreciate and enjoy.
My whole point I am trying to make is that don’t let money define you as a person let it help you and support you to enhance what you already have.
Don’t let money be the only reason you smile!!
Don’t let the world consume you and take away from you being yourself.
Also don’t get wrapped up into it and don’t end up not having time for your loved ones.
Remember money comes and money goes!
One thought on “Meaning of Your Life!”
Recently I came across a quote dat stated this – Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value. The rest will come with it.
When I thought about this, It really got to me because its so true. Most people out here do have the drive and hungry to become successful, but it you don’t have good morols and structrue in place correctly in your life nothing is going to happen. This to me has to be the most important thing to achieving great things with your life. Everyone is so wraped up with getting everything now without the struggle…even myself have been guilty of this mentality in the past, but this is a condiction that we must get rid off. Its the struggle that we learn the most about ourselves and why we decided to walk the path we choose. To me the meaning of life is the struggle….its all about the struggle. When ur telling ur life story there has to be a massive part between the start and the end….that massive part is called life !!!
