It is not wealth one asks for, but just enough to preserve one's dignity, to work unhampered, to be generous, frank, and independent.

W. Somerset Maugham (1874-1965)

There is a term "fiancial freedom" which, when one attends, provokes you to get more.

To 'preserve your dignity and to work unhampered' you will need to save a lump to pay the lawyers to remove your marriage stone.

It would be nice if I could pay my bills without having to cut down on my grocery list... otherwise drive around with a broken headlight and illegal inspection sticker because my kids need to eat first.... I just have the basic necessities and I still stress out about money... that is no life to live... I'm not asking to be wealthy... just be able to get by without stressing about money all the time... it tends to wear you down after a while..

How long will you continue to look in all the wrong places for a fulfilled Life?
Independence is not the answer, far from it, in fact pursuit of it is the problem.
Our Lord God Almighty desires and rewards our total dependence on Him, praise the Lord! He is the answer.
Unfortunately this is not something the natural man can understand, but he can ask the Lord to give him understanding.
And, heartfelt willingness pleases the Lord.

welcome back son of TLGIMF (or similar)

and who needs to buy food, there is tonnes of it thrown away every day by shops and restaurants, or useless to farmers as the shops reject it as imperfect. We need to change our thinking of what is necessary....

The only advantage of money lies in the fact that when you have it you need not to think of it. When you don´t then all your efforts must be directed at providing for yourself. But if you have it enjoy it instead of being posioned by selfish greed.

"The gods help them that help themselves."--"Hercules and the Wagoner" ---- attributed to Aesop in the 6th century BC.

Man controls what goes on, here on earth. It is what it is.

Until man decides to do what is right and fair by all and not think of himself and all the false glory he believes wealth with give him, then perhaps he will do what is right for all and stop this selfishness. Man can change the conditions of the earth if he chooses.


peace out, >^,,^<
