Reflecting on Happiness, Peace and Materialism.
11 min

Hey monkiis,

I had some thoughts pop into my mind over the weekend that I wanted to share with the monkii family. Essentially, we just moved into a new house and as awesome as it is not as satisfying nor does it elicit the same level of peace as my bigger physical adventures. Let me also be clear, I'm very VERY grateful for what we have and I want to make sure this is understood. However, I have noticed more and more in the last ~5 years that material things actually bring me less "happiness" and satisfaction. The more life experience I get under my belt the more I realize what is important and for me, it's the following: 1) family, 2) friends, 3) health, and 4) adventure. These are the things that mean the most to me and lead me to feel peaceful and purposeful. Interestingly, you cannot buy any of these. Instead, they must be earned and respected if you want them to stick around.

If you have questions, please send a note to and we can get more monkii Q&A sessions going.

Thanks for tuning in and if you are enjoying the episodes we would be eternally grateful if you could leave a 5-star review. It helps to grow the monkii family and spread the good word of the Wild. Thank you.

See you out there and monkii on,

-monkii Dan
