Saturday Share: What Makes a Good Life?

Every Saturday I would like to share with you a video I find inspirational. There are so many amazing, enriching resources out there. Hopefully these videos will bring you joy and inspiration!

Many people when asked what they want in life, or what would make their life successful, would assert that money would be the number one factor to a happy life. Many might claim fame, or business success. But how many would decide that the number one factor to a happy life would be relationships? That’s exactly what Robert Waldinger teaches in this TedTalk based on a 75 year study of men’s lives. I find this talk fascinating and totally relate-able. Robert explains that our relationships and the quality of those relationships not only make us happy but make our minds and bodies healthier. Loneliness is a killer. This study aligns completely with the life that Steve and I are trying to live. One in which we have the time to maintain and grow important relationships with others and our marriage. It might mean less stuff but if it means a happier longer healthier life….I’m all for it.

What do you think? Would you agree with his assessment?
