As an adult I have learned that having money doesn't buy happiness, but it does allow us certain freedoms. It allows us not to be bound by debt. It gives us more options and provides us with more doors to walk through. With that said... it can't mend broken relationships, heal you from illness, or fix a broken heart.
Here are two scenarios and you can only choose one:
A) You live pretty much paycheck to paycheck. There are no fabulous European vacations, no savings for back up emergencies, and buying designer means you found something marked down at TJ Maxx. Take out pizza is a luxury. Your home is small, homey, comfortable and always filled with loved ones. Your family is tight as can be. You are healthy and you know you are loved.
B) You have a plethora of money and wealth. Flying off to Paris for the weekend is common nature for you. You have several homes, one oceanfront, a spectacular loft in the city, and a personal driver. You don't have any real friends, only acquaintances. You are estranged from family. The only time you have guests is when you have to host a social gathering for your wealthy circle of colleagues. You are admired for your wealth but not sure you are truly loved.
What did you choose? A or B? Be honest!! Truth is, I think we are all a bit better off if we fall somewhere in between the two. Too much or too little of anything is never good, even when it comes to money.
