I was thinking about writing a post on the topic of being happy with less, and losing the urge to accumulate things.
While researching quotes, I came across a blog post from Lori Deschene of Tiny Buddha about just that topic, which saves me some trouble.

There have been times in my life when I have had more, and times when I have had less. During my early adulthood, I worked long hours and had no family, thus I had income to spare. Sometimes, I had so much cash flow I would forget to cash my paychecks.
Was I happier when I had money? No, not really.
Was I more relaxed when I had money? Oh my, yes.
I would not trade my family for all the money in the world, eternal youth, or pure relaxation.
I am living now — not in some theoretical future life or idealized fantasy of perfection.
I choose now. I choose love.
