When Money Goes on Vacation by YakekponoAbasi Adams

If you’re complaining because you aren’t able to buy a second iPad, have you thought about people who can’t afford a plate of meal?

No, I don’t mean a three-square meal, I mean a plate of a meal. I’m not even referring to a plate of meal with almost all the classes of food, no. I mean a plate of food that contains at least one class of food.

Meanwhile, you’ve a roof over your head, a work that you return home from, and a savings account (although you haven’t received salaries for the past few months).

No matter how hard it is, you have what to bounce back on. No matter how hard it is, you can pay your utility bills. No matter how hard it is, you can afford your children’s school fees.

Yet, you complain bitterly about how hard your life is. You wallow in depression and you cut-off family and friends. You loose your temper at any slightest provocation.

Hey, money has gone on a vacation. However, endeavor to make the best of the little you have. Extremely brooding on the economic crisis will do you more harm than good.

Above all, do not forget to share with others. There are people terribly starving and living in unspeakable conditions. If you could channel your energy to help some of these people, and at the same time, save for yourself and your family, I think you’ll find inner happiness – the kind of happiness nobody can take away from you.

In everything you do, strive to find something to be thankful for. The fact that you are alive and well, should be the first on your list of gratitude.
