Money Can’t Buy Happiness Indeed…

Wednesday, February 10th, 2010

I stumbled on a Yahoo News story tonight about Karl Rebeder – a Millionaire – who gave all his money and properties to charities set up by himself. And you should go to read the post, and see the comments – many of which left me wondering again about our judgmental human nature – so totally useless… And how difficult it is for most to see the goodness in people when it’s due.


In all honesty – I’ve never seen money making anyone happy. However – the same is true for the statement he made to the Daily Telegraph:

“Money is counterproductive – it prevents happiness to come.”

I’ve always seen wealth and money as a way to be free and be able to live a satisfactory way of life. And this is different for everyone. Money cannot buy one a real love, nor happiness, or health. It could make life much easier than it is to live life while struggling to pay the bills and being unable to enjoy time with the people you love, and doing the things you love doing. I think, he meant to say that he is missing a “Real Purpose” in life that could make him happy, and that probably “less is more” for him at this stage of his life. Here you can read more about Karl Rebeder and this story.

Now I’d love to hear your opinion about this story, and do you agree with his statements. Stay always fabulous and happy!
