Why do I want you to be happy? I have my reasons – some of them altruistic, and some of them selfish. Our country’s happiness has flatlined since the 1950’s despite dramatic improvement in nearly every aspect of our lives. It's been said that for every want fulfilled, another emerges. In fact, entire industries have been created on this fact alone. One path we pursue to secure happiness is possessions. Do we need half of the stuff we own? At what point did we begin to belong to our belongings? Did you know that the number one complaint homebuilders hear from owners is that there isn't enough storage space? This despite the fact that the average square footage per household has doubled in the last generation. We need to begin distinguish what brings joy and happiness in every aspect of our lives...work, family, and friends.
