Is Money Everything?

I believe most of us (in our present generation) have realized that we have lost the real meaning of life and live a subservient or non-existent life with money being the controller of our life. Materialistic wants have become our latest obsession in addition to keeping pace with possessing everything that is being invented and marketed without really thinking twice whether we need it or no and to top it, we want to own it before the rest do! What are we trying to achieve by doing so..?? 

We all want to lead a secure life. But it is also important that we know how much are we willing to sacrifice for the comforts that money can buy. While the uphill journey of minting money is an ego booster; the downhill journey is a game changer for it is here that you learn who you really are..!!

Life isn’t about money alone. it is also about the people in your life. But, again, when you've people in your life, you've their responsibilities to cater to and with the responsibilities comes the need to have more money. Oh! What a blessed rigmarole..??!! This is something which we cannot escape but given a timely reality-check and by taking the necessary measures, we can balance it right while walking on the trapeze of life.

Money, like caffeine and cocaine, is addictive..!! 

Money, while it makes us independent also comes with an elixir which gives its owner a feeling that everything can be bought with money. Such is its power that we fail to realize that its addiction is exacting on the sanctity of our relationships with family and friends. If we embark on an endless pursuit of minting money without knowing when is enough, enough, the result would be a catastrophe that cannot be contained. You start feeling you are who you are due to the prowess of money you have and not because what was instilled in you when you were growing up in life. You start trading feelings for stocks to ensure you have a portfolio to boast of and flaunt..!! You feed your ego and move only in the upmarket segment, refusing to connect with people who are not in par with your riches. You start pitying and ignoring them little knowing the truth that these are the very people who are more grounded and lead a happy and better life because their relations are bonded strong and their wants are few. For them money is a means and not the be-all and end-all of life . 

At the sunset of your life, you'll realize that it is not the bank balance that you have but the strong meaningful relationships that will keep you going. It is not about the targets you achieved in your career or the games you played to climb higher up the ladder but it is about the difference you made to the lives you touched. 

To sum it... Do not be a money digger, invest in relations for by doing so happiness and success, both, will find you..!!

Are true meaningful relations a passé..??

Science may have found a cure for most evils: but it has found no remedy for the worst of them all - the apathy of human beings. - Helen Keller
How right are her words..!!
Almost all of our sorrows spring out of our relations with other people. Do we really understand the meaning of true relations? Are we seeking them in the first place? Statistics reveal an alarming increase in divorce across the world, at high frequency where marriages get frizzled out in few days/months. Reason given is incompatibility. But, did you ever give it your full to the relation to make it work? How come our parents and fore fathers generations never faced this problem? Are we, too, demanding in our relations or highly impatient to adjust and adapt and draw conclusions at the drop of a hat? Nowadays, love has become a matter of chance, matrimony a matter of money and divorce a matter of course.
In this age where social networking has become prevalent over us; true meaningful relationships and friendship have…

Don't let a Season in your Life define your Lifetime..!!

“There seems to be a kind of order in the universe, in the movement of the stars and the turning of the earth and the changing of the seasons, and even in the cycle of human life. But human life itself is almost pure chaos. ~ Katherine Anne Porter
We are all here for a purpose. But, how many of us really do realize that the time is ripe and we are ready for to seek the purpose, if we haven't as yet? Instead of finding peace within us, we seek it in the realm outside. Such state of mind doesn't last long. Sooner or later in our life, as we look at the reflection in the mirror, we realize this question staring at us through our reflection. This is where begins the journey to define the "I" in us. No matter what be the nature of questions we pose, the answer might be sought then or through some signs that nature unveils in our path as we move on. Patience and endurance are the key factors. Truth remains, we are here on Planet Earth to touch each others lives while evolvi…

EXPECTATION - A Road block!

For a long time, I have given a lot of importance to relations in my life. While I gave all of me into every relation that I made in my life, somewhere in the remote corner of my mind was the creeping fact that I was not getting my due. This nagging thought troubled me a lot for a long time, till a dear friend of mine posed that as a rhetorical before me! For the kind of person I am, I dwelt deep on this and I started questioning myself. Why was I expecting to be reciprocated likewise in the first place? Why was I not just giving my all and getting done with it and by that I mean moving on with my life? In expecting, the reciprocation from the same person on whom I was showering love, care, affection and protection; I was also laying a base pre-condition of that he/she would do the same for me without asking for it. And, when they did not, it left me visibly hurt, affected my emotional balance and other relations. Had it not been for this conversation with this friend of mine, I would…
