What is important in life?

Contemplating a move to a different country really makes you think about what is important in life. We are on this earth for a very a short time and we need to make the most of it, but what are we to make the most of?

Should we try to make the most amount of money? Money enables us to do what we would like to do when we would like to do it. However, there is no proven link that money actually makes you happy. In most cases you become a slave to money since you become dependent on it to maintain a certain standard of living.

Should we try to make the most of our own happiness? We often hear the saying, "as long as it makes you happy." The problem with happiness is the same problem with money, it does not satisfy because it takes more and more to make us happy.

There is a lot to be learned from older people. They have seen what life has to offer and should have a good perspective on what is important. Many older people have had successful careers but what really matters to them is their children and/or their grandchildren. It is not their latest vacation or their brand new car, most would give that up in a second to be with their family.

People are important in life.
