Investments for Life

Last week my Mom’s cousin and family had come from Bombay for a holiday. One morning while having breakfast we were discussing investments. As always my family wanted to check on my financial status, so there came the question – What investments have you made?
I thought and the said – ‘Three, I have invested in myself, for my grandchildren and for my retirement.’
‘And what are the investments?’
‘Hmmm, well,’ I said, ‘I invest in myself, spend on all I want to do and all that makes me happy, a fulfilled life, so I may not have all that everyone has but I have done all I wanted to do and seen all I wanted to see. I have had an enriching life and learnt a lot from it. My second investment is my grandchildren. I will be their favourite grandma, their role model and above all else, I will never have to repeat a story and will never run out of them. I will pass from this life and yet not have told them all of my life. And my third investment is my retirement, when I sit back then to review my life, I will be satisfied, very satisfied, and ready to then leave at anytime.
I would have lived each day to the fullest, my life completely.’
Well… the conversation then moved on to the usual convincing of you have to make monetary investments etc, but I’m not gonna bore you with that.
