Life With Money

I find myself wondering how life with a lot of money must feel like. Can you imagine what it would be like to never have to worry about how you'll pay for something? To never be concerned that your electricity will be turned off or that you'll default on your loans? To be able to just book a flight to London on the spur of the moment and make reservations in the finest hotel without a second thought about how much it costs?

Budget is a word I know very well. I have been on a budget for well over a decade now. Managing my money and trying to figure out just how much I have left for the month until the next bit comes in, trying to make sure I don't overspend and figuring out what might need to wait until next month or the one after that. Or knowing full well that something I really wish I could afford is just not going to happen.

Now, those sorts of concerns are decidedly better than wondering how I'm going to pay for my next meal. But I've been there too. I don't ever want to be there again. No, I've never been starving or homeless, thank God, but I remember a time when I searched my apartment for something of value to sell just so I could eat until the next paycheck got there. Those times are hopefully over forever. But I do wonder what it's like to just never have to think twice or worry about money at all.

They say money can't buy happiness, but can it buy peace of mind? What if you already have happiness in your personal life and you love your career? Will money complete the "happiness" equation? It's a good question for random Monday morning.
