Living stress free

Money does not buy happiness (or does it)

Written as a Facebook Note, June 21, 2012.

Does the adage ‘money does not buy happiness’ sound familiar?  Well, depending on who you ask the answer to this question could be yes or no.  Whatever the reason, money does create happiness that can be found in quality of living when you begin to look at different scenarios.

Does your health insurance allow or limit you to see certain doctors?  Do you have the flexibility to take time off from work without fear of losing your paycheck?  Are you concerned with how you will pay your rent if your employer begins to lay off personnel?  What will happen if you, the breadwinner, becomes sick; who will pay the rent or car payments?  

Do you ‘pay’ yourself first before you pay your bills?  You may not understand the preceding question, yet it could be the difference between the rich and the poor.  Many years ago I remember being told to set money aside for hard times and to make sure 3 months of  monthly rent is saved up for a rainy day.  Today I wonder how many are told the same thing (rhetorical).  So if you believe ‘money does not buy happiness,’ think again because having money could be the difference between stress and peace of mind. 

Tip: people with money and wealth usually don’t talk about it; they volunteer, donate anonymously, travel, employ others, explore places and events, invest, are inquisitive about others, and the list continues.

  2. Hi Julian, I understand what you’ve said. I sometimes think what I said. but I admit that I am going a little hard. ask Felita for forgiveness on my part. it is also an opportunity for me to say to tell you that I never accepted and supported your separation. I’msorry, I know that everything I’m saying now will not change anything. I better stop here. so Felita, once again I’m sorry

    • Nogues, my younger brother-in-law (you see I still call you my brother-in-law); I prayed about if I should approve or disapprove your post and if I decided to not disclose, I would be going against the very purpose of my Blog – to share candid conversations for the public to see. First, I accept your apology and yes, I called your older brother (my ex-spouse) to inquire about the tone and reason for your distasteful comment. Let it be known that although you did not and still do not agree with our separation that led to our divorce, he and I have both learned something from the former marriage. Julien and I remain friends and not just for the sake of our daughter, but for the sake of our healthy well-being. And just to share – my relationships with your sisters, mother and other relatives are rather healthy and I am hopeful that you will find it in your heart to look beyond the separation of our marriage and in the face of kindness. May God Bless you in your ministry and all of your church members that follow you. God looks beyond our faults and loves us, always! Take care and kiss your kids and wife for me and Torrie.
