Can money buy you happiness?

Money buys possessions. It doesn't buy happiness. And the problem with possessions is that you never have enough. Once you get the new car, you want something better next time. I once had an extremely well-paying job - I was probably in the top five percent or so of earners. But I was miserable. Now I earn less than a third of what I once did, and I couldn't be happier. It is not things that make us happy - they just make us want more and better things. I found the secret to happiness is to be happy in your personal relationship, and to just be happy. You can be poor and happy, or you can be rich and miserable. I will take poor and happy any day.
