Friday Thoughts – Material Things

Friday, October 14, 2016

In the first edition of this weekly blog I’d like to share this article I spotted online which makes perfect sense…Something to think about?

As we grow older, and hence wiser, we slowly realise that wearing a £300 or a £30 watch – – they both tell the same time.

Whether we carry a £300 or a £30 wallet/handbag – – the amount of money inside is the same.

Whether we drink a bottle of £300 or £10 wine – – the hangover is the same.

Whether the house we live in is 100 or 1000 square metre. – – loneliness is the same.
You will realise, your true inner happiness does not come from the material things of this world.

Therefore, I hope you realise, when you have mates, buddies and old friends, brothers and sisters, who you chat with, laugh with, talk with, have sung songs with, talk about north-south-east-west or heaven and earth – – That is true happiness!!


1. Don’t educate your children to be rich. Educate them to be Happy. So when they grow up they will know the value of things not the price.

2: Best awarded words: “Eat your food as your medicines. Otherwise you have to eat medicines as your food.”

3: The One who loves you will never leave you because even if there are 100 reasons to give up he or she will find one reason to hold on.

4: There is a big difference between a human being and being human. Only a few really understand it.

5. You are loved when you are born. You will be loved when you die. In between, You have to manage!

6: If you just want to Walk Fast, Walk Alone! But if you want to Walk Far, Walk Together!

1. Sunlight

2. Rest

3. Exercise

4. Diet

5. Self Confidence and

6. Friends/Family

Maintain them in all stages of Life and enjoy a healthy life.

The older we get, the fewer things seem worth waiting in line for.

So in summary, do what ever makes you happy in life, call that old friend for a pint / glass of wine, go play catch in the park with your children. Life isn’t all about chasing the money, yes it can buy you things but sometimes happiness can be taken for free.

Enjoy your weekend.
