So I was on the metro with my friend on the way to a Caps game and we got into talking about what it would be like to have a lot of money. We’re always told by the tremendous amount of elders that we know that money doesn’t buy happiness. Happiness comes from doing good in the world, loving others, being kind, etc. That’s all true, but here’s the thing. Money buys us things. Supposedly things don’t make you truly happy. Here’s the thing, I absolutely LOVE the Capitals. I have since as long as I can remember. A fourth of my clothing is Caps related. My love for this team is intense. And I’ve always said that if I won a million dollars, I’d buy season tickets to the Caps. That would equal happiness. So, I feel like this is a loophole. Because I can be kind and take someone with me to enjoy a game. That also goes under loving others. Once I figure out how it does good in the world, I’ll let you know.
Moral of the story: money can buy legitimate happiness. Loopholes for the win.
