To me meaningful happiness in my life means that I have freedom to do whatever I wish to do and there is no one in my way to stop me. having peace and tranquility and not a lot of drama in my life, so that I have time to concentrate on the more important things rather than on the stupid and selfish ones. Being able to do the things that i love such as sports and traveling and so on. No, I would not say that being rich would bring happiness to me. i have everything that I need right now to stay happy and I am so far from being rich. I mean, what person in not happy when they have money in their pocket and food on their table and they do not have to worry about paying their next mortgage payment or their gas or electricity bill. But when a person gets too involved in money, they loose the true meaning of happiness.
