We've all heard that saying, "Money can't buy you happiness". That's bull. Maybe whoever said that didn't finish their sentence, because money CAN buy you happiness, but only parts of happiness. I agree that the richest person in the world isn't guaranteed total happiness and satisfaction of life just because they're the richest person in the world. However, they're a little happier than the poorest person in the world, who is probably dying of malaria right now. Money won't make your life complete, but it'll give you something. I become happier when I buy something I really like, or when I receive a gift from someone who I know spent their own money to buy it for me. It might sound shallow of me, but material goods do make me feel better, and puts me into higher spirits, which thus promotes me to think positively. I feel prettier when I put on that Formal dress I bought yesterday. On the other hand, I could have all the pretty dresses Macy's has to offer, but that won't make all my problems better, my parents stop fighting, or my fish from dying.
On the side note, I bought my Winter Formal dress yesterday! It took me a long time to find it, but I'm glad I didn't find it until the end, because that made me feel even more accomplished at the end of the day. Afterward, Vivian, Erin, Olivia, and I went to Yogurtland. Mmmm I love fro-yo. See? Without money, I wouldn't have been able to buy that frozen yogurt, and would not have been able to enjoy those 20-something blissful bites.
