How (life) rich are you?

Esquire chal­lenges you to look at wealth with a fresh per­spec­tive

Esquire (UK) - - Style -

In a hy­per-con­nected, rapid-paced world that pits us con­stantly against one an­other: com­pet­ing, chal­leng­ing, com­par­ing and long­ing, we of­ten associate be­ing happy and con­tent, with hav­ing more. Bet­ter this, faster that, a seat there, a con­stant striv­ing to at­tain. Hap­pi­ness comes to us in fleet­ing, of­ten ma­te­rial, mo­ments and can, with­out our will­ing, evap­o­rate just as quickly.

It can be easy to for­get about the im­por­tance of ex­pe­ri­ence. A quiet cove in sum­mer at dusk with a group of close friends and no real plans or pres­sures; the path less-trod­den and chal­lenges new. Re­wards for the hard work of day-to-day, en­joyed with the peo­ple who mat­ter.

With 128 years of see­ing, ex­plor­ing and dis­cov­er­ing un­der its well-trav­elled belt, San Miguel knows a thing or 10 about the rich­ness that comes with get­ting out there and liv­ing.

Be­cause, re­ally, what does it mean to be wealthy?

It’s cer­tainly more than just money and ma­te­ri­als*. *Al­though hav­ing a boat would be nice, wouldn’t it?
