I’ll start out with the usual call for a happy, happy Friday, but this week it’s even more pertinent. That’s because the topic on the agenda for this week’s topic is… happiness! Of course, we threw in a little money talk and rounded up articles specifically addressing the connection (or lack thereof) between money and happiness.
There’s the old adage that money doesn’t buy happiness. But then, of course, there’s the research that says that maybe it does – up to a certain point. Ultimately, happiness is a compilation of all sorts of stuff, combined to result in overall contentment with your current position in life (along with plenty of smiles). Yes, money sometimes plays into it – but it doesn’t have to. Here are some great reads that take a look at just where money falls into the combo:
