Reflections by a Lake

Money once spent or lost can be earned or found again.
On the other hand, time – once spent or lost – is gone forever.
Therefore, time is more valuable than money, or even silver or gold.

One needs money to buy a wide screen smart TV to enjoy great documentaries of nature. Or, one can go out into the mountains or walk by the sea
and be simply awed by nature herself – for free.

I can go to a spa, spend a pretty sum to pamper and relax myself.
Or, I can drown in the hugs and kisses of a loved one
and watch all the tension in me melt away – for a chocolate bar.

I can indulge in noise and mindless activities – for a fistful of dollars.
Or, I can spend time in quiet solitude to discover who I really am – for nothing.

I can choose to make my life complex and costly.
Or, I can choose to make my life simple and free.
Now, that really should not be a hard decision, shouldn’t it?
