I'm at a point in my life where it's a time of change, going to college next fall, deciding important life choices. And, i'm starting to realize more and more that money isn't that important. When I look back at all I have, I wonder if I really need all of it. I have a ps3 that I hardly ever play, for example. Plus, in psychology, I learned that Denmark is the happiest country in the world, and part of it is that they don't care as much for money. They work 37 hour work weeks, get more time with family, and are generally happier people. I always wanted to be that famous guy who became richer and had it all. But, I'm realizing that as long as I have strong relationships and can help others and enjoy my life, money is not that important. A great part of me now wants to go off to a country where I can live modestly, help people, and enjoy my life with family and tennis. The story below definitely opened my eyes: Sure, this is a simplistic look at it. But, does anyone else want to have a career that is fulfilling while living a modest life? Are material goods really that important?
