Happiness because in my opinion, having money brings on a whole other set of problems.

Picture of my family - Without them no amount of money would be worth it. I remember once meeting an 80 year old man when I was working for Mobile gas station. He came in all the time with multiple vehicles. I asked him what he did for a living, and he told me that he owned small companies all of which brought him enough money to live comfortably. He also told me that his wife had passed away and that his kids were gone on there own (of course considering he was 80 I had figured as much) but he told me that he never talked to them. The last time I had saw him, before I left Mobile he told me he had some advice for me. "Never let money be the reason you live, because what's most important is the goals and aspirations you set for yourself, not the money you make from them."
I have never had much money, and have never been one to want it all that much. To me money is more aggrevation than it is worth. I have to give though, because without it you can't live I have had lots of happiness and joy in my life, however. My wife of ten years, my loving daughter and just recently I signed a contract with a publisher. (That could well bring money with the happiness one day) I would have to say that since I have been happy overall (with minor downs) and haven't had much money I would have to go with Happiness, because if I had money and wasn't happy then what good would the money be?
