Is money everything?

i have recently started a new job and the idea of quitting crosses my mind once every hour. but the only thing that keeps me going 1) the experience 2) getting out of my comfort zone. 3) Money. so it won’t happen anytime soon. i hope. and i have been wondering if money was one of the main reasons to wake up in the morning, what if i don’t have to work for it? what if i have all the money i want? what will i end up dong? so i asked people randomly on Path and twitter just to have like a general idea what motivate people to work and earn some money, what they are going to do if they have a good amount of money, and to inspire me to write this blog post.

so my question was: If you received enough money to never need to work again, what would you spend your time doing?

I’ve received couple of pretty creative inspiring answers ,and of course the most common answer is TRAVEL, well, i would probably do the same, if i got the chance to have my own plane and travel everywhere why not! but here, take a look:

  1.  Traveling the world. Kinda cheesy but meh.
  2. I’ll start my own software company ..
  3. Probably, I will work again with less responsibilities.
  4. I’ll build my own art studio and enjoy doing crafts
  5. I would dedicate all my time to volunteer work, there’s nothing more pleasing than selfless deeds and a lot of money :p
  6. بشتري شركتي و اشتغل فيها
  7. Traveling, learning more languages, meeting new people, more hobbies.
  8. Get my master and Ph.D., I would probably establish my own orphan center + center deal with teenagers issues with professional and trustworthy staff + travel the world and spend the rest of my life there, perhaps, that’s my plan for the next 10 years so yup.
  9. أشتري عقارات و مزرعه و أسافر و أصرف على عيالي
  10. افتح مكان مخصص لكبار السن يقضون وقتهم فيه و يشوفون ناس جديدة هناك.
  11. Volunteer work

starting a business on top, and i admire those who work for building themselves from scratch and without any help. hobbies comes next, it made me sad that we spend so much time on doing the things we don’t like/enjoy for the sake of money and an Independence ,while the things we love is on hold forever. and i know how important it is to be Independent, it is life requirement and i also believe that you can still paint, travel and play soccer/tennis if you managed your time (it is true).

these answers made me think about what i might do if i received enough money to never need to work again! let me just say that restarting my own business on the top of my list, traveling comes next: Adventures in Africa and walking around old houses in France, volunteering and helping kids with cancer. last but not least, SPEND ALL MY TIME  FEEDING MY SOUL WITH ART BY VISITING GALLERIES AND MUSEUMS! and the list goes on and on.

but here is another question, is money everything?

Hello guys

i have decided to post bond Weekly Thoughts for awhile, or i might just stop, i don’t know i haven’t decided yet, i don’t think my life is interesting at the moment haha, any way, i wanted to share something with you guys

Book Suggestion: قصص القرآن – عمرو خالد

اهلا, كيف حالكم

مبارك عليكم الشهر, بدري شوي

بما انه رمضان قرب, ورمضان احب اوقف اشياء كثير كنت اسويها وابدلها باشياء ثانيه, مثل الكتب, اوقف نوفلز مو مفيده واقرأ شي مفيد

حبيت اقترح لكم كتاب قرأته في رمضان اللي راح

DSC_0435

قصص القرآن لعمرو خالد

الكتاب فيه 20 قصه متنوعه

286 صفحه

هدفه الاول والاساسي ( نحيا بالقران ) انه نرجع للقران بكل امورنا, نستنبط منه كل اللي نحتاج ولاننا في رمضان نقرأ القران اكثر, حب انه يعرض هالقصص عشان نتمعن في الايات أكثر

كان توقعي انه يمشي على السور بالترتيب لكن كانت مقتطفات من بعض السور, بعض القصص اللي لها معنى سهل ونصائح نستخدمها في حياتنا اليوميه

ذكر قصص ناس عاديين ومو أنبياء ولا صحابه, يقول في مقدمته انه الله سبحانه وتعالى ذكر هالناس لحكمه وسر

مثل اصحاب الجنه, قصة قارون, اهل الكهف وغيرهم

فهو في كتابه يشرح قصصهم والسر ليه ربنا ذكرهم في القران

الكتاب ممتع, صرت لما امر على الايات اوانا أقرأ قرآن اربط القصه على طول

من الاشياء اللي اعجبتني يقول:

“الكثير منا يتخيل أن الأصلاح والهدايه لا يجوز أن يأتي من اناس مثلنا, بل يجب أن يأتي من قوى خارقه, مثل الملائكه, فلا يتقبلون أن يصلح مشاكلهم شخص عادي مثلهم او من أهلهم, وإنما قوى خارجيه. بينما الحقيقه أن الإصلاح يبدأ من الداخل, فالبعض ينتظر حلا لمشاكله بانتظار المهدي المنتظر ولكن كن أنت التغيير الذي تحب ان تراه في العالم”

—————-

” فعلى الرغم من عدم علمنا للحكمه وراء كثير مما نراه فيجب الإيمان بأنه من أقدار الله وعلينا الرضا”

—————-

“أتعلمون أن من رحمة الله أن الجثه يتغير شكلها ورائحتها ولونها بعد الموت؟ لأنه اذا لم تكن تتغير كان الناس ستحتفظ بها كنوع من الوفاء وكنا سنحيا حياة كلها كآبه,علمنا الله من الغراب الدفن لكي ننسى ونعيش حياتنا ونقابل موتانا في الجنه بإذن الله”

الكتاب فيه كثير اقتسابات اقدر ارجع لها في اي وقت, تذكرني او تعطيني دفعه قدام اني احسن من نفسي قبل احسن الناس اللي حولي

أصل الكتاب برنامج كان يعرض في رمضان فاللي برضو مو حاب يقرأه راح تحصلون كل الحلقات على اليوتيوب, بس انا اقترح الكتاب أفضل

وان شاء الله في رمضان هذا راح اقرأ  كتب علي الطنطاوي

DSC_05222

ما اتوقع بخلصهم كلهم لكن ان شاء الله ثنين منهم :D

حاولت ابحث عن كتاب عمرو خالد لكن ما حصلته pdf

لكن هنا كتب علي الطنطاوي اذا حابين تقراون له شي

First:

Creative bookmarks, i can’t get enough of it and i just started to collect them, also i do control my self ! because if i gave my self the chance….nothing will stop me from buying all the bookmarks in the world :P

Second:
