I certainly think it's a difficult balancing act. The saying that money doesn't make you happy is probably true but I think a large lump sum of it would certainly give you the freedom to try and find happiness. Too much of life seems to be about how to pay the bills.

That's exactly it, most of us seem to work to live rather than live to work and find meaning and joy in what we do. Or something.

But at the moment I'm not exactly the best person to be saying thing about life since I feel all kinds of messed up at the moment.

I think the way the world operates right now it's hard to find joy in what we do for money, because money is given to people who help/work to propel crappy industry and governments along, and the like, resulting in workplaces that are rather uninspiring. A good portion of inspiring work is unpaid or vastly underpaid or irregularly paid, eg. charity/aid work, art... nursing!
