Happiness is a state of mind… every human being strives to be happy… they play mind games… to achieve what they believe will get them happiness…most people feel that they are unlucky to be born the way they are… they see tall fair pretty faces around them & see how every1 wants to be with them & how they are all alone in the crowd… they are not happy about their lives… but its just their state of mind… would they like to trade shoes.. maybe yes… & would the tall pretty fair girl like to trade her shoes… maybe yes… why??? Because every1 wants to be with her… but not because of her intelligentsia… they wanna be with her to show off to the world that they got a trophy by their side… or maybe because a 100 cheapsters hit on her on a daily basis & stalk her so much that she just cant sleep at night…. would you rather be alone or be stalked or considered a show piece bimbo??? Like I said… happiness is a state of mind!!!
You feel that you wanna live in mortgage free homes… have stalks of cash to squander… a big house with an AC, LCD blah blah maybe even a jacuzzi… that will bring you happiness eh??? Owning a iphone & a viao… wearing a rolex & spraying on a Gucci… would make you feel nice… Maybe… but will it make you happy??? It’s a well established fact, that the more money you begin to make… the more you start to lose your sleep over it… at all points in time you’re scared that some1 might break into your house & take away your valuables… or that your children are plotting how to kill you so they can have their share from the will… wouldn’t you like to trade some of this tension for a little less showoff??? Would you rather not be content as a middle class man who is loved by his family??? Like I said… happiness is a state of mind!!!
You may feel that you need to work you’re a** off for your career so that you can retire early, take care of your old parents, have your spouse & kids all the things in this world… you work over time… your kids have the highest pocket money… you feel elated, proud… your wife shows off the diamonds you gifted to her… you get an ego boost… you work even harder to make more money… slowly giving all your time to work… but when you ultimately retire… you realize you wanted to take care of your parents but they are no more… you realize that you wanted to see your children happy, but they are happy with their lives that doesn’t have u as a part, they hang out with frenz all day & night & spend the money that your toiled for… your wife doesn’t love you anymore & is involved with another man cuz you never gave her time when she needed… you toiled so hard to be happy… but are you happy??? Like I said… happiness is a state of mind!!!
So go ahead & dig deeper.. figure out where your happiness lies… it cannot be shallow… it cannot be about money… it gotta be with what/who you love under the blue skies with smiles that shine!!! J
