Quick Write 072811 “Doing brings more happiness than owing”

The vacation season is upcoming for many people. I’ve booked a week-long getaway in early September. It’s going to be my first “reading retreat” during which I’ll read the books that I’ve been wanting to for long. I’ll basically be hanging out in a nice, cozy hotel room, so the destination shouldn’t matter much, actually. While surfing online magazine articles today, I found a TIME article on the research findings on psychology of money. It states that when it comes to spending money on things or experiences, doing brings more happiness than owning. Put the other way, for getting more satisfaction from spending money, we should go on a vacation to obtain new experiences rather than go to a electronic appliances store to buy new gadgets.

The part in the article I’ve found impressive goes like this; we quickly adapt to the material good, but the experience endures in the memories we cherish, the stories we tell and the very sense of who we are. If I were any younger, I couldn’t soon appreciate what this is supposed to mean. But I’m now mature enough, fortunately, to know that the ecstatic sensation of obtaining tangible items lasts no longer than the inner contentment of cherishing intangible memories. Well, then, it may lead a conclusion that I’ve made a right decision? Supposedly “Yes”.
