Happiness With or Without Money

I’ve met people with every expensive toy that money can buy that are living proof that “money can’t buy happiness”.  On the other hand people in some countries have a lightness of spirit and an easy friendliness who are living on the bare minimum with no extra comforts.

What makes a person happy?  Certainly in our county having no money can be a strain on happiness.  But my bank account shouldn’t be the meter to my happiness.  I want to find a way to enjoy my life no matter where I am or what I’m doing.

Looking around I see happy people who are not famous and rich.  Some are married, some are single.  Some with lots of money and some without a dime.  Some are healthy and some very sick.  There seems to be no rhyme or reason as to what makes a person happy.

Here are some tips to the pathway of happiness:

  • Take ownership of your happiness.
  • Do what you love.
  • Love your body – you only get one.
  • Live, really live and not just exist.
  • Nourish the relationships in your life.

So I ask you “Can a person actually be happy for no reason?” and “Does Money buy happiness?”
