Should I be encouraging that money won’t buy happiness and that we must find internal ways of making ourselves happy? Absolutely.
Am I going to? Probably not.I do believe money won’t buy you happiness. I’m not impressed by fancy cars or designer clothes or watches that allow you to read your texts on your wrist even though you’ll pick up your phone to reply anyway so what is the point and you just look like you have great difficulty telling the time (strong opinions on ‘smart’ watches).But of course, one usually needs money to pay for many of the things that makes one happy. It’s undeniable for the majority of us that, occasionally, material items make us happy, even if they’re not typically deemed ‘materialistic’. A good book makes me very happy, but I have to pay for it. Fancy coffee undoubtedly and quite infuriatingly gives me great pleasure, and god knows I spend money on those.I’m not going to go into the ins and outs of the pleasures that money can’t buy and how we definitely should seek some internal happiness. I think it’s really important, but all being honest I can’t be bothered and I’m chit-chatting about treating yo’self and I already have an issue with word limits anyway. I know you already know. You’re a very smart lady. I don’t even need to explain or excuse; I like to spend my hard earned money on pretty things sometimes, especially if I’ve had a shitty day or a man is taking up too much of my mind.
OK, I’M A LITTLE SHALLOW LEAVE ME BE. (more…)
