This is my opinion (coming from someone that doesn't have any!) You don't have any stress wondering where your next meal will be coming from or how you are going to pay that bill. You can also DO things with money. Think back to your happiest childhood memories and I bet they will be on holiday or of a day out in a theme park etc, all possible if you have the money! Dont get me wrong, one of my happiest memories is of doing something on a budget, but we still needed money to get there! My Mum used to take us on picnics on the beach because she couldn't afford for us to eat in the restaurant/diner, but she still had to have some money to get us there and buy the food! So the next time someone tells you money cant buy you happiness.....tell them they are lying as I always have a smile on my face when I have a pocket full of cash !!
