- On Money and Happiness
May be I will go on answering a couple of more questions on plinky. This one asks me if I think money can buy happiness.
My answer to that will be a diplomatic one. There are situations where money is the much-needed ingredient to cook happiness. And there are situations where money can be salty! Let me imagine going to a movie, I would definitely need money. But let me imagine choosing between spending a day with my wife and making more (more means more than required for a reasonable living!) money at work; I would prefer the former for it makes me feel much better. But I leave you with your imagination to work on examples from your life to answer this question. I have seen plenty of them to share here.
But again, if someone forced me to give an answer this or that, I would say money is not the most necessary element in being happy. If you do not believe me, may be you haven't yet watched 'Shortcut to happiness'.
