Do you think money can buy happiness?
Answered on 31st July 2007:
Money can't buy true happiness. Not the jaw dropping ache I feel at the thought of my children going to school soon. Not the flutters of true love, or the firmness of long term love. But money could make things easier. Most couples argue about one thing-the ever loving dollar. We don't have this, we need that, you spent what on this ugly thing? It's the one constant, the one thing that many of us don't have enough of. But it's not an end all and be all. Currently, i work full time and my husband part time, and together we still likely make less than many of you here make on your own in a year. But we're happy. We have eachother. Would we love to have a spare million or ten around? Um, YES. It would mean travelling with our children, a life free of mortgages and concerns about the cost of groceries. It would mean I could have that organic herb farm and all those tattoos I want. But it wouldn't make us better PEOPLE. It might even make us worse. I'll take my thrift store chic life for now. In the long run, it's so much less stressful.
