Agreed!I’m in a similar position, and totally agree.

My response to “Money Doesn’t Buy Happiness” is, and always has been: “Money Doesn’t Buy Happiness, but Happiness Doesn’t Buy Anything”.

Put in a less-pithy fashion, if you pursue “happiness” at the expense of ignoring financial reality, you are likely to be disappointed on both fronts. Happiness is a lot more difficult (though admittedly not impossible) if you have less than a minimum amount of money.

But yes, after you reach a certain point, money is just Points on the Scoreboard. If that makes you happy, so be it, but it’s certainly not going to work for everyone (or even most people.)

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
