I say yes to this quote, I never appreciated this before because all I think about is the importance of money. Yes, in the world we live in today, we need money to survive. It’s our necessity but money isn’t all that we need. Sometimes we pay more attention to the material things; like gadgets, jewelries, big houses, trendy clothes, cool cars. We try to lift our careers to achieve these things that make us happy.
Yes they do make us happy, because when we have all of this stuff; it makes us proud of ourselves to have achieved this much. But what happens next? We lose our purpose, because we assume that we already have all. But what we don’t realize that the littlest things, the ordinary things that we do together with the people we love is what makes us truly happy. The simple family dinner where everyone laughs and jokes with everybody, when your partner says he’s sincerest I love you, the first time your child says mama, the good memories, the sweet kisses and warm hugs. These cannot be bought, but it sure makes us undeniably happy.
