    I've been thinking a lot lately......do we value money too much? Should we stop uber planning for the futer and live our life's dreams? Or is it better to save for an age when you cant really enjoy it?

    money can't buy happiness, but lack of money makes it easy to feel despair and anxiety and worry. you need enough money to sustain a lifestyle that makes you happy, but that cannot be the only contributor to your happiness.

    There's a great book called The Ultimate Key to Happiness by Robert Scheinfeld. Short book
    but very good outlook on life and happiness. I think you would find your answer after reading it.

    the keys to happiness are gratitude, acceptance, flexibility, humor, connection, and resilience.

    This is very true. Get where you need to be to pay your bills and maintain a reasonable lifestyle. After that, use the excess to make your dreams come true.
