I wish life was a remote. Play the easy times. Pause the good times. Fast forward the bullshit. Rewind the memories.

I wanna earn a lot of money in future, I wanna be a millionair. That is a fond dream, our earnest wish. Whoever don't wish to be a millionair? Some people do it through their own bussiness, while some simply get  lucky by winning  the lottery or winning big on a game show. I pondered the concept of "striking" rich, and the million dolar dream that we all seemed to be attracted to. Many of us seem to have bought into the illusion of what a million dolars will bring, the vision of lasting happiness, of ultimate comfort, the end of trying and suffering. But does it really bring us those things? Does it really bring about that happiness which we all seek? This is where it gets interesting. For one thing, it certainly doesn't bring lasting happiness, or the end of suffering, or solves all our problems. It doesn't cure loneliness or fulfill our desire to live with more meaning. Example, try to imagine of someone who wants a house, and he/she gets a house. He/She wants to move to a new city, and she gets up and moves without bringing any luggage. It only bring temporary satisfaction,  it doesn't bring what matters to us most, inner peace, fulfilling relationships, and lasting happiness. Having million of dollars isn't going to extend your life, it wont helps you to find true love, it wont make you healthier, it doesn't make you feel less alone, or more fulfilled. If we can't find any happiness and fulfillment now, having millions of dollars later will not get you any closer. And so, the happiness is what we all seek, our choice is simple. " Tomorrow " is an excuse that will take your dreams  to the grave with you. Start living now with your dream now, whatever that is. After seeking out, I've come back to the same place as when I started, I just want to be happy. It is the one that I can experience to the fullest right now. If you have millions of dollars, how would your life change. What would you be doing. Self-examining. Share your thoughts with me in the comment below.
