This quote by Benjamin franklin says in one line what I would probably take more than 100 words to describe. Can money produce happiness?…NEVER…It only produces ILLUSION of HAPPINESS.
When I was a kid, I often used to see my parents going through a difficult period, with concerns over one or another financial issues, but never once did it suggest that they were not happy. Instead, they were able to shrug their concerns and be at ease with whatever their situations were. They used to work hard and still always had time to play me and my kins, to attend to ceremonies of relatives, to gossip about with friends, and god knows what not..
Now that we all are grown up man and woman, earning (and squandering) much more what they(our parents) used to, still nowhere near to that bliss and content we always saw on their face and in their actions. Brain is always occupied with chaos, and sometime if we pause and think, we find no reason for this more often than not. It is like we have moulded ourselves in a way to live in these state of FRENZY and DISARRAY.
Today, I ADMIT that I have much less time for for MORE IMPORTANT things in life than to earn money..I ADMIT that I have not seen my friends and calling my relatives that often what I should have been..I ADMIT that I do not enjoy most of the thing I have been doing for the sake of others.I ADMIT that I compare my life to others than to be satisfied with what I have..
