Can You Buy Happiness?

April 1, 2013

I saw this quote today: “You can’t buy happiness but you can buy tea…and that’s kind of the same thing.” I’m not a big tea drinker, but I get the concept and it made me think about what things you can buy that make you happy even if it’s only temporary – like your favorite tea. I definitely hear people say that you can’t buy happiness…but that seems to be said by people with lots of money! =) Does having money & nice things contribute to happiness? Is happiness something that is within our DNA? Are some people just “born” happy? Are some people just born unhappy?
