A little funny about your financial insecurity.

 

FINANCIAL INSECURITY

 

How you spend your money is how you spend your life. When I first heard this sentence a few years ago but I couldn’t make head ‘nor tail of it. It seemed like some spiritual axiom that might be good for Buddhists and yoga instructors.  The kind of people who give up their material desires to live in an ashram. But those ashrams aren’t cheap. There is the airline ticket to India, the malaria shots, the visas and then you want to look good.

 

Money is on my mind because I m getting older and that Black Sabbath song “Die Young. That is my long term financial plan.” Well I’m too old to die young. I missed that window about 13 years ago.

 

My long term plan has included somehow a windfall is coming. That I am buying weekly lottery tickets usually after one of the commercials, going to Bingo halls hoping that I will win the big ticket from the priest (or catch cancer from the second hand smoke) I have wished for people to die. Not people I love, no. People I hate. This is a dumb plan because why would people who hate me or whom I hate leave me money? My line of reasoning was they would leave me money to get in my good books. Or to make me feel guilty for hating them.  I also hope people will give me a surprise party. None of this has happened. I am kind of like the little boy whose looking for the pony in the pile of poo.

 

 

With all the talk of economic growth and decline and the stock market being up and down like a toilet seat at a frat party, money I think about it a lot. It’s the one substance we created and now it seems to control of our happiness.

 

There are two types of people. The first one always  talking about money. Telling you how they much they paid for something. Who measure their success in life by how much cash they have. They like to remind people they live with how much everything costs. And then there are people who say I don’t care about money. Money doesn’t bother me at all. I have none of it It is not something I can afford, so there is no point in thinking about it.
Some of these speak about the bottom line. Money shouldn’t be the bottom line, children should be the bottom line. Cheap children who won’t ask for too much when they go to a mall.
