Well, it ain't money, cos money can't buy you love

Odd that legalisation of euthanasia for stroppy teenagers wasn't on the list

But I'd settle for more time, I suppose

No concerns Jan 13

I’m doing fine and I have no concerns at the moment. I had a serious health scare last week, but after a battery of exams and tests (some more “pleasant” than others), it was just that…

Health = life Jan 13

Everything else is a bonus. My colleague's father passed away last Monday and events like this bring home how fleeting life is. Money is great, but you can't take it with you, or spend it on nice wines if you livers's up the spout... etc.

at the moment, but money would no be a bad thing, but health is also very important. Time used to be an issue, but then I discovered time management and the ability to say "No".

3 things Jan 13

Health & Love are very important - and not only at the moment. A little extra money won't hurt, either because my computer is about ready to meet its timely fate.

An attitude to life... Jan 13

... that enables you to cope with the lack of any of the things listed. Life is always full of difficulties - if not these, then others. Being able to cope with them is what matters and what makes us mature people.

But no time to share right now. Big issues don't seem that simple. Depends how you look at them, right? And what you believe in. Big concerns make you wonder what your beliefs really are.
That was one weird/funky/profound question by Ms or Mr Anonymous today, not quite sure what to make of it.
They say time is the best healer, tough. I suppose it all gets sorted out in the end, doesn't it - no matter who we are.

Just the usual existential angst, I guess.

Edit: I meant, working out how to cope with the above.

Time Jan 13

I know it all comes down to what we decide to prioritize, but time is currently my biggest concern. Wish I could have more free time to do whatever I wanted.

Health + others Jan 13

Of course all these issues are important, and I can't really limit my choices to a single one.
However, in terms of concern, I must take better care of my health right now. I don't have any health issues, but I'm also not doing the regular checks I should, I don't have regular meals or sleeping hours, etc. At 50, I better start taking care of these things.
