Happiness Has No Price!!

Many people think Money will make all their problems go away but in reality, money is just legal tender that has no real value. Today was payday and after paying my light,cable,cellphone, and my twins monthly tuition I was left with pretty much nothing, and in the end im still happy! Money isnt everything and as long as the bills are paid and the fridge is full of food then im okay with that. Sure id love to make more but that still wont determine my happiness, it needs to come from within if you really want to be content with life.

@BACONSTRIPSXXX .. But there are people who buy "happiness". They offer lots of money. There are people also who accepts the offer. But later find out that they will not become happy even if they have everything.

You're absolutely right. Happiness has no price. So long as you're with people you love and everyone in your life is healthy, that's what matters.

I really never liked the people who are driven by money. I worked in the mutual fund industry. The amount of greed I saw in people disgusted me.

Learning what you are good at and working on your talent is what makes me happy. Like writing satire materials of sports and entertainment.

If I didn't have to wake up early or work for money and was super rich I'd be so happy. I'd just ride bikes. Play with remote control boats.. and fish all day. Then go see a movie, go to nice places to eat... I would do what I want when I want. The world would be my damm playground. Once I get my sites big enough.. this will be my life style. Id also pay other people to do chores for me. WORK would not be a word in my vocabulary.

What a wonderful outlook on things. I could have never said it the way you did, and it is all so true. Money can't buy us happiness, as we have to make our own happiness. Money does help, but if you don't have it, then you have to make do with what you do have. I am struggling too, but I know I will do okay as long as I don't spend it carelessly. I am trying to save as much as I can, and in this economy, that sure isn't easy, but I will do just fine, of that I have no doubt.

@BACONSTRIPSXXX I am in and out most days now, as I have been crocheting for a gal who is expecting at the end of September, and I want to get things made before the baby shower. I will be comeing in here periodically though, to get the notifications done, and interact some so I am not gone permanently, as I love mylot to much to stay gone to long.

Ya absolutely.Money is not the key to happiness it's the non materialistic things and your own positivity that leads to real happiness.

I like the way you think... happiness is how you look at life. Some people are good at it lol... others... not so much. They want the big bank account and then realize that it didn't make that much of a difference after all!!

Anyone who thinks money is the answer to everything is wrong. Those people need to wake up. Money doesn't make you happy. Well, if spend wisely on things that makes YOU happy, that's a different story. I don't have much money. I even have to sometimes borrow money to be able to have something to spend until i reach payday. But I am happy with my life. I am happy to be able to go places, though not far, just walking distance away, and enjoy the fresh air or just simply being alone.
