Money, Money, Money

Since I was a child money has always been an abstract concept to me, then later in life I was enlightened about the barter system and the world suddenly made more sense. We strayed away from trading goats and cows mainly due to politics, colonialism and greed BUT lately I keep thinking of how money wastes so much of our time.

We spend our lives learning to make money without learning how to save it- this is the first step to the downward spiral of modern life. The idea of money has kept our perception of time in a confined box as we believe the best way to spend life is making money is through a 9-5 and we should actually feel rewarded by the weekend (which were only made for consumers to spend the money they’ve been working for all week anyways).

I wish everyone would notice the beauty in living an average, simple life but our teachers, leaders and even parents guide us into the never-ending cycle of eat, sleep, work repeat.

We were not born to pay off debt and help boost and circulate whats left of this pathetic economy.

Till next time,

  1. Unfortunately, we need money to do all the things we want to do! I’m a teacher, and I find it quite difficult to balance encouraging kids to pursue life and pursue a way to support themselves at the same time.


  2. Thanks a bunch for sharing this with all people you

  3. Nice post. I learn something new and challenging
    on sites I stumbleupon every day. It will always be useful to read
    through content from other writers and use a little
    something from their sites.


  4. Its like you read my mind! You appear to know a lot about this, like you wrote the book in it or something.
    I think that you can do with a few pics to drive the message home a little bit, but instead of
    that, this is excellent blog. A fantastic read.

    I will definitely be back.
