Live is all about feelings. Doesn’t matter what kind of person you are. Bodybuilder, daddys princess, Donald T**** or an 25 year old dude.
It doesn’t matter how old or at which point of life you are. Feelings dominate! Period! And each of us, is in the pursuit of happiness.
- you dont have infinite money.
- you dont have infinite time.
So we know that money can make you happier.
Am I right? Or is it the safeness – we can pay our rent, get food and make ourselves a lil present from time to time for a short term of good feeling?
The question at this point is, how to allocate your/our money, which is a llimited resource.
We spend money on physical objects, because they will last longer. Thats the logical leading thought. it makes us happier for a longer thime than a vacation. According to recent research, it turns out that assumption is not right.
One of the enemies of happiness is adaptation. We buy things to make us happy and we succeed. But only for a while. New things are exciting to us at first, but we adopt to them. – Dr. Thomas Gilovich
For example, we are all happy if we are buying the newest mobile phone, but after using daily, it doesnt make us happy period.
I’m not writeing about the messages, just about the mobile device.
So the material thing is always present for us, that makes it easier to adapt it. It becomes a part of normal/daily life.
But while happiness from material will leave after while, experiences become a part of our identity.
Our experiences are a bigger part of ourselves than our material goods. We are the sum total of our experiences. – Dr. Thomas Gilovich
Another big reason experiences are so important is that shared experiences connect us more to other people.
Whats your idea of someone who travel the world and tell you beautiful stories instead of someone who have bought a new car with wifi?!
After we share our stories we feel connected and after they left, they and there stories are part of stories that we tell to one another.
After all I want to leave a qoute to think about by Jim Carrey:
I think everybody should get rich and famous and do everythink they ever dreamed of, so they can see that it’s not the answer.
