I can sometimes understand the feeling that if only I had xxxxxxx dollars I'd be happy. But I spent 30 years working with some of the wealthiest people on the planet. Sure, some of them are, or at least appear to be, pretty happy. But there are plenty of them that are downright miserable unhappy bastards (and bitches). If find that the ones who are self made tend to be the happiest, although there are exceptions. And the most miserable are the ones who inherited their money. So, what is the key to being happy? I think first and foremost you need to feel comfortable with your position in life. It helps to have achieved some measure of success in making money for yourself, whether it's climbing the corporate ladder or owning or running a successful business. You also need to have quality relationships in your life. Family, friends and the like. Because that's your support structure. I don't care whether you have all the money in the world, there will be difficult times that you need help getting through. There are other things that help with happiness but these are just the major ones. Many more than there is room or time for here. And as for this Covid thing, I keep thinking that hopefully by this time next year, we may be actually able to drop the masks. But probably not before then. Anyone who is an anti-mask, anti-social distancing and anti-vaccine is only ensuring that the time it takes for things to truly see some semblance of normalcy will be longer.
