To be content or to be wealthy?

Which would you rather have?

I don't want to be rich. Which I guess some people would find strange considering my Asian background :P

But wealth has somewhat broken my family so I have no desire to be filthy rich one day.

I would rather be content. All I want is a house, doesn't have to be big, but a nice brick house with a few bedrooms, a decent kitchen and a room I can turn into a library, a big yard for the dogs. That would be nice. I don't want to drive a BMW or a Merc. I like my sports cars and yes, it would be a dream to cruise around in an Audi R8 GT. But I would rather settle on something that will last me awhile, practical, and the dogs can fit in. If I really could afford it I would probably buy a Mitsubishi Evo. But at the moment it looks like I'll settle for a Grand Vitara or a HiLux.

I don't want to be a doctor or lawyer or CEO or executive this or that. I want to work with dogs, coffee, bars, the things that hold my interest and that I like to do. I don't need to be paid much. I just want enough to get by. Enough to pay for my house, my car, my bills. Life's little luxuries like a decent TV, a computer, a set of Le Creuset pots, nice clothes, books. To be able to have enough each year to take a trip away somewhere and still have enough to save in the bank.

That's all I want.

Sure it would be nice to be rich... But I'm happy with what I've got. I guess I'm half way there. I've got the house with the yard, most of the furniture, the car (which the dogs are quickly outgrowing...) the nice big TV, the Xbox.

It's nice enough being content. Can't really ask for more ^-^
