I’m at a farm in Northern Nevada, spending time with family and friends, in a gorgeous multimillion dollar home with a breath taking view.
As I sit hear drinking my coffee on a leather couch positioned in front of a monster stone fireplace and a huge wall of windows, I wonder can money buy happiness?
Now let me explain. I’ve commented a few times about wanting to acquire significant wealth to buy a big home and all it’s glory. Yes, it’s a selfish goal but one I will accomplish with tons of hard work.
“Dreams are made a size too big so that you can grow into them.”
I want the big house with lots of rooms, granite countertops, bathrooms that look like hotel spas, mass king fireplace, acreage for gardens and my husband’s cattle & horses. I want it all. It’s where I want to spend my hard earned investments.
But it’s not all for monetary reasons. Like this house holds the whole big clan on a visit; everyone couple has there own room. The kids have a gorgeous playhouse/bedroom. The children get to feed the trout, ride the horses, and run around on the tractor. They also get to learn horseman skills and how to fish. The family gets to gather around the large open kitchen chatting up memories. The boys get to man it up around the BBQ and patio. The family concept is awesome! And I would be honored to be that house that gathers my family and future grandchildren in a big ole house.
Can money buy happiness? Well, the family gathering is the happiness, of course. The money can increase it’s fun. And as my goal, I’d rather enjoy investing in it’s material glory for the cause.
Do you think it’s wrong to have such selfish goals? Do you have selfish goals of your own that you want to share? Be fun to hear them. Have a Happy Memorial weekend.
