Money

Money and life is analogous to lubricant and automobile.

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.

Resolved: New Year 2016 Resolution

Resolved to make a list of New Year Resolutions to be broken. Made the list, so I kept my resolution.

Resolved

 

Every year, by Dec 31st, I always make a list of New Year’s resolution with the full intention of breaking the list at the first opportunity.  This year was no different, I did resolve to make the list for 2016. I did keep my resolution and I have a blog post to prove it.  This year I upped the ante.  I created a list of my own Ten Commandments for 2016.  You may visit my post “My Ten Commandments” in by blog https://fleetingmuse.wordpress.com.

 

My Ten Commandments

Funny New Year’s resolution as personal list of ten commandments.

My Ten Commandments

Thou shall make New Year’s resolutions
To break
Because destruction leads to creation
As proven by The Big Bang

Now that the best
Is off my chest
It is time
To make the rest

Thou shall make a To Do List
Every morning to check at night
For one or two that gets done
Others left for tomorrow but that’s alright

Thou shall eat only what you need
It’s too bad that food
That’s bad for you
Tastes so good

Thou shall workout to get rid of
The Holiday fat
Though it may be difficult
To get up from bed

Thou shall take
Good care of your health
Though in the long run
It may reduce your wealth

Thou shall be proactive
Always up and running
Though it’s much more fun
To be procrastinating

Thou shall always be happy
Even though it may be difficult
When your wallet
Is always empty

Thou shall always be positive
Always keep smiling
Keeps people guessing
What’s your ulterior motive

Thou shall always help as much as you can
Keep the exit clear, so that
When the time comes
You can always run

Last but not the least or is the other way around
Scratching my head, I have lost my count
Just to make it short and sweet
I will be brief, no more tweet

Thou shall keep your mouth shut
Silence is golden, they say
Difficult to put your foot in your (closed) mouth
Try as hard as you may

Now that I have my list of ten
It is time to revisit number one
New Year’s resolutions made to be broken
Because breaking is really fun
