Some people call it retail therapy, some people call it the magpie instinct and they both sound like something I can relate to . But, is it true that the more you let go of the material stuff, the more room you have in your life for things like love and happiness? I don't know the answer to that one, but I can tell you about something that has made me feel good!
Happiness is very subjective and hard to define. What makes one person happy does not make everyone happy ( I am positively unhappy if someone suggests we take a ride on a roller coaster but suggest an evening of Elvis music....I'm ecstatic) . You probably know what makes you happy, be it Elvis or a roller coaster ride, or an evening with a good friend. The chances are money has very little to do with the happy moments in your life.
