I've lost both of my parents recently and inherited a lot of money. While it's obviously much easier having the money, it hasn't brought me any happiness. In fact, I miss the days where I worked, saved money and struggled a little. I was actually much happier then. Some people put so much value into money and I just don't get it. I know we need it to live and it makes life easier. But, I would seriously be happier if I were poor right now with my parents. If you are struggling with money right now, but have your family alive and well, please realize that you are actually very rich.
