“I have money. Please come back.” The Best Six-Word Memoirs of the Week

Best Six (Aug 16-22)-01 (1)There have been numerous debates on money and happiness; while money may not guarantee joy, it certainly is an important factor in our lives. This week’s Sixes involve money and outcomes. Our Sixers shared stories in which money affects relationships (“Getting a dishwasher saved our marriage.”) and defines eras (“My previous life relied on payphones.”). Sometimes our happiness comes without breaking the bank (“Every ride has its own payoff.”). They proved that money is more than those green bills we carry around. Money can bring us happiness, but it does not define our happiness. –Gilmarie Brioso
