Daily Money Minute

If you lost all your money, what would your life be worth? Would you have lots of friends and family rallying around trying to help you? Could you look back at your achievements and then reflect philosophically on your newly constrained circumstances. Would you think you’ve had a life well lived with no regrets? Possessions such as money and things are all temporary. We can’t take them with us once we’ve drawn our last breath. Life is fragile and possessions can disappear in the blink of an eye. Just ask all those poor people in the Philippines affected by Typhoon Haiyan. It’s the quality of our life and the experiences we have that matter most. I doubt if many people on their deathbeds say they wished they’d had more money. However there will be plenty wishing they’d spent more time with the people who mattered most to them.
