Money alone does not bring happiness

December 18, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

I know the Tiger Woods story is old news but I appreciated these comments from Michelle Singletary at the Washington Post from Dec 3.

“But more importantly, and the reason why I’m interested in this story, I think it goes to show that fame and fortune alone can’t make you happy. Tiger’s a reported billionaire, at the top of his game and he’s got a host of problems to deal with now.

We may not know exactly what Tiger did or with whom or how many times, but his own admitted “transgressions” show he wasn’t happy with what he had.

Let that be a lesson to those of you how think more money is the answer to your happiness.”

That said, an article in the New York Times does tells us that money does indeed bring happiness, even if it doesn’t guarantee it.
