This weekend, take some time to write down what it would mean for you to consider yourself rich. You can also sit down with your kids and have them reflect on and discuss this topic as well. Make it part of your family’s Independence Day celebration, but just do it before the fireworks. Happiness is part of an enriched life. The “pursuit of happiness” is part of the essence of being an American; it is one of our “unalienable rights.” You can use these questions as food for thought:
- Can we be happy in a world of connected, always-on workplaces?
- What amount of money will it take for you to be happy?
- What are the keys to your family’s happiness? Education, travel, family gatherings?
- Does stuff makes us happy? (Sorry, I couldn’t help myself!)
