Can money buy happiness?
‘No’, my answer had always been the same till I read a book called ‘The happiness project’. The author advocated for money as a source of happiness. Not money itself, yet the way we spend it. She invited the readers to try spending money in ways that would bring them happiness. Like buying tickets for a musical concert they cherish, traveling to a place they wished to visit, getting gifts to the ones they loved, booking a massage…and the list went on and on. Reading this I made a paradigm shift and I started to pay more attention to the ways I spent money and how to use it as a tool to spread happiness among the ones I truly love and hence becoming happier. Yes, I concluded, money can buy happiness.
