The Case for Not Being Wealthy









Wealth is what I aspire to have in terms of memories, experiences & friends. Also, I aspire to be self-aware. In order to do this, I educate myself in self-help books, business & finance books as well. It’s all well & good being wealthy in material things & being wealthy in financial terms. However, having all the materialistic things that I want is not what I really want in my life. In the end, we don’t get to keep those cars, clothes, crystal earrings & diamond rings. Although, being a lifestyle/fashion blogger requires me to go shopping for clothes, shoes, jewelry, & bags/clutches; I don’t do this very often. It’s not like I don’t see the point, because I see it. I’m at a point in my life where I’m taking care of myself on a mental level. I get it that you have to work smart to get to that level as I’ve had retail jobs, which aren’t fun. Anyways, I digress. I don’t think it’s important to be rich in funds, as long as you’re pursuing your goals & taking them to fruition & changing your life for the better. I’d rather be wealthy. At this point in my life, I’m wealthy in friends, family, food & in intelligence (continuously working on this). On another level, I see why it’s important to be wealthy in funds because that supports yourself, what you have to pursue to change lives & to improve your own life. Being wealthy isn’t only a mindset, it’s a way of life. I aspire to be that way. I realize that it takes time AND money. Both are important to sustain our lives here. Like I said, I’d rather be wealthy than not have anything in my life to support myself with.
