Because none of us have many years to live, and we can't take along anything when we go, so we don't have to be too thrifty.
Spend the money that should be spent, enjoy what should be enjoyed, donate what you are able to donate
DON'T WORRY about what will happen after we are gone, because when we return to dust, we will feel nothing about praises or criticisms. The time to enjoy the worldly life and your hard earned wealth will be over!
DON'T WORRY too much about your children, for children will have their own destiny and should find their own way. Care for them, love them, give them gifts but also enjoy your money or what is left of it, while you can. Life should have more to it than working from the cradle to the grave!!
40 - 45 year olds, don't trade in - your health for wealth, by working yourself to an early grave anymore. Because your money may not be able to buy your health.
When to stop making money, and how much is enough?
Out of thousand hectares of good farm land, you can consume only three quarts (of rice) daily; out of a 1000 mansions, you only need 8 sq.mts of space to rest at night.
So, as long as you have enough food and enough money to spend, that is good enough. You should live happily. Every family has its own problems.
Just DO NOT COMPARE with others for fame and social status and see whose children are doing better etc., but challenge others for happiness, health, enjoyment, quality of life and longevity.
DON'T WORRY about things that u can't change because it doesn't help & it may spoil u r health.
You have to create u r own well-being & find u r own place of happiness. As long as u are in good mood & good health, think about happy things, do happy things daily & have fun in doing, then u will pass u r time happily every day.
One day passes WITHOUT happiness, you will lose one day.
One day passes WITH happiness and then you gain one day.
In good spirit, sickness will cure;
In a happy spirit, sickness will cure faster;
in high and happy spirits, sickness will never come.
*With good mood, exercise, sun, variety of foods, good amount of vitamin and mineral intake, hopefully you will live another 20 or 30 years of healthy life.
ABOVE ALL -
Learn to cherish the goodness around... like your spouse and FRIENDS........... They all make you feel young and "wanted"... without them you are surely to feel lost !!
Wishing you all the best for the years to come.
