Time to think…about what money cannot buy

“Let’s pass over to the really rich – how often the occasions they look just like the poor! When they travel abroad they must restrict their baggage, and when haste is necessary, they dismiss their entourage. And those who are in the army, how few of their possessions they get to keep…”
Seneca, On Consolation to Helvia.

 

Money can’t buy you love. No material possessions can solve the internal issues that we all experience from time-to-time. While it might marginally improve some of the challenges we face, the real difference comes in changing our opinion of the things that we see as challenges. Health, wealth and happiness: only one of these is in your control.
