I was waiting for assignment 5 for Blogging 101 to arrive and then I suddenly realized, if Time is money, I am wasting my money. I became sad and depressed. A small voice inside me started chirping. Must be the effect of wasting all those minutes looking at the beautiful blog post of the visiting birds by our fellow bloggmate, Randall Krzak. The small voice was saying, time is money but money can’t buy you happiness. Yes, happiness. Immediately I became happy again. Then I became thinking about money again. What is about money that makes us slave to it? I think money is the lubricant that keeps our life moving smoothly. Like an automobile to run smoothly, we need oil (lubricant). Without that the car engine will break down midway through the drive. But where is the oil? Out of sight and out of mind. Most essential but not being flaunted outside. Oil does not make the auto look beautiful. There are many other components that must mesh well to produce the beauty that is a eye candy to behold and becomes the ultimate driving machine. In life also, we need money to keep running our life smoothly. But it can not be everything. We need other things in life to make us happy, including spending time with our bloggmates in cyberspace sometimes.
That does not mean winning the record powerball lotto on Saturday will not make me happy, the thought of winning itself is making me salivate. If I win I will hire somebody to type for me.
