Non attachment means not to allow external factors to control you. Anything that makes you stressed means that you are attached to it as a say goes root of all kinds of suffering is due to attachment. It is interesting to notice that when you are not attached you can enjoy a lot because your mind is calm and quiet mind is always aware of present moment and it is always happy. When you are attached your body; thoughts; sensation, perception and consciousness. Whenever anything pleasant and agreeable happens you want more and more you start to crave but when unpleasant and disagreeable things happen you are irritated and try to avoid so in a long run your mind loses its balance .When there is attachment you will not own things rather they own you.
At present your happiness totally depended on the money or material possession but this all are inconstant and leads to suffering. So the only way to be happy is walk in the world as if you own nothing in amidst of all abundance start releasing your mind from all kinds of thought that creates an illusion of I, My or Mine they lead to suffering
