Because none of us have many years to live, and we can'ttake along anything when we go, so we don't have to be too thrifty... Spend themoney that should be spent, enjoy what should be enjoyed, donate what you areable to donate, but don't leave all to your children or grandchildren, for youdon't want them to become parasites who are waiting for the day you will die!!
Don't worry about what will happen after we are gone, because when we return todust, we will feel nothing about praises or criticisms. The time to enjoy theworldly life and your hard earned wealth will be over!
Don't worry too much about your children, for children willhave their own destiny and should find their own way. Don't be your children'sslave. Care for them, love them, give them gifts but also enjoy your moneywhile you can. Life should have more to it than working from the cradle to thegrave!!
Don't expect too much from your children. Caring children, thoughcaring, would be too busy with their jobs and commitments to render much help. Your children take for granted that they are rightful heirsto your wealth; but that you have no claims to their money. 50-year old likeyou, don't trade in your health for wealth by working yourself to an earlygrave anymore... Because your money may not be able to buy your health...
Out of thousand hectares of good farmland, you can consumeonly three quarts (of rice) daily; out of a thousand mansions, you only needeight square meters of space to rest at night. So, as long as you have enoughfood and enough money to spend, that is good enough. You should live happily.
Every family has its own problems. Just do not compare withothers for fame and social status and see whose children are doing better,etc., but challenge others for happiness, health, enjoyment, quality of lifeand longevity...
Don't worry about things that you can't change because itdoesn't help and it may spoil your health. You have to create your own well beingand find your own place of happiness. As long as you are in good mood and goodhealth, think about happy things, do happy things daily and have fun in doing,then you will pass your time happily every day.
One day passes without happiness, you will lose one day. Oneday passes with happiness, and then you gain one day. In good spirit, sicknesswill cure; in a happy spirit, sickness will cure faster; in high and happyspirits; sickness will never come. With good mood, suitable amount of exercise,always in the sun, variety of foods, reasonable amount of vitamin and mineralintake, hopefully you will live another 20 or 30 years of healthy life ofpleasure. Above all, learn to cherish the goodness around... andFRIENDS... They all make you feel young and "wanted"... without themyou will surely feel lost!!
