Too Much? Nah

“Perhaps too much of everything is as bad as too little.” – Edna Ferber

When is enough enough?

When does it cross over into too much?

Can you ever really have too much money? I honestly don’t think so. Money is not the root of all evil, it is THE LOVE OF MONEY that is. I hear all the time how it is not fair that athletes make so much money or that actors are too overpaid. The way I see it is that they have a skill set that can command a HUGE paycheck, that is their right.

If you don’t like the fact that the cast members on “Big Bang Theory” are now making $1 million per show, then DON’T WATCH THE DANG SHOW. Don’t complain about it and then tune in every Monday night at 8!

Same thing goes with athletes, if it bothers you that much that they are able to make tens of millions of dollars per year playing a game, then don’t watch the games or go to the games or let your kids play the games. But don’t complain about it and then order your favorite players jersey!

Can you ever get too much love? Is there such a thing as too much kindness? Too much giving?

Of course there are things that are negative when you have too much. Too much sugar in your diet is not good for you. Too much sitting on your ass with little or no exercise is not good for you. Excessive selfishness is not good.

The way I see it is that we all have different wants and needs. It is usually envy or jealously that make us hate people that have “too much”. Some of us don’t need that much and after years of chasing too much have come to the realization that we really only need certain things to live. A roof over our heads, love of family and friends, and a little bit of serenity.

Now if along the way I am able to acquire some things that are nice, just don’t hate me for it.

Peace

About joatmon14

Man in recovery from everything, looking for a little help, inspiration and direction.... Have spent the last 25 years working in big business, getting lost in all the chaos, not feeling like what I did mattered. By no means am I a professional writer nor do I even think I am that good, but it is something I love to do. Getting lost in a world of words, even for just a little while is why I started my blogs. In reality, at the age of 49 I am trying to find my voice. To find my passion. Maybe starting a little late, but better late than never. I write for me, I enjoy reading other's thoughts very much as well and look forward to the day that I can hold an extended, intelligent, meaningful conversation with YOU View all posts by joatmon14
