Money, the thing we all work vigorously for, the thing that is considered a symbol for success, the thing that can gain you an access to any possible thing humanly achievable , the thing for which we turn our backs on our fellow brothers. It is arguably the single most important thing in life.
I mean who am I to judge but Ariana Grande’s “7 Rings” got me grooving. Lashes and diamonds and ATM machines? YASSSS QUEEN

But jokes apart, can money really buy happiness?
Sure money can buy you things that can make you happy but is it really the true meaning of being happy. When I was a kid, whenever my dad bought me new little cars to play with I did get happy genuinely by heart, but we aren’t kids anymore. Things like new clothes, new mobile do cheer us up but is it really what you call happiness ?
“What are you going to do if you have all the money in the world and all the things that you wanted to achieve in your business and you have no one to share it with? You come home alone at the end of the day. And then what?“
— Heidi Klum
Being with the people that you love, people who care for you, who are indifferent to the fact how much money you have is what you call true wealth.
Money can buy everything, even support and acceptance from people but the one thing that wealth can not buy is health. What are gonna do with a million dollars in the bank when you can’t even stand on your own feet? You can get the most expensive treatments in the world but what if you still can’t make it. Just to give you an example, Steve Jobs, founder of Apple, died due to cancer at just the age of 56.
Health is the most valuable asset that you can possess, it is a gift and no amount of money can buy it.
Now this doesn’t mean that money is not important, it is extremely important in our lives but the common misconception that people have of associating money with happiness is completely wrong there are other much more important things to life than just money. A gardener might be more happy with his life than the person for which he works, you never know!
