Gratitude Monday -- Spending Energy Edition

The  power locks on the driver's side of my car have messed up. They will not lock. Much as I would love to take a door apart and see if it is a simple fix, I don't have that skill so I will leave it to the professionals.
This means I get to spend money, and yes, I do mean it.
Money is energy. It only serves when it is being used.  While it is important to save money for the future, it is also important to use it.
Send it out to do what money does: pay for goods and services.  Those who are paid can use it to do the same, thus setting up an energy path where things get done.
I like money. Not in and of itself as it is an inert object, but for what it can do: feed me, clothe me, take me on trips.
It can't do any of that if it is hoarded.
It isn't money that makes the world go 'round, it is is energy.
Putting the energy out in money form makes things happen. That is important for a functioning society based on using energy in the form of money.
I will get my locks fixed. In doing so I inject energy into my local world and for it I am grateful.

OK. I will try to remember that when I repair the garage and the car and WHATEVER!

It's called currency for a reason, it is meant to flow.

Give it a shot, Tabor.

Messymimi, yes. I wish I'd thought of that.

As I read this I have no (physical) energy to spare. I have stayed home from work two days (seeing the doctor on Monday) and now I have my two regular days off to get well enough to go back Friday. If only we could save up energy for this kind of expense!
