22 Jan Do you live your life for happiness?
Towards the end of last year I was reading a book, not directly related to happiness but certainly addressing issues relevant to living a better life, in which I found this (very relevant happiness) quote:
“I was part of that strange race of people aptly described as spending their lives doing things they detest, to make money they don”t want, to buy things they don”t need, to impress people they dislike.” (Emile Henry Gauvreau)
Launching off this I pose to you the following questions the answers to which, I hope, will help you find more happiness:
– do you spend at least some, if not most of your life engaging in activities you love and that bring happiness?
– do you strive for a level of wealth or an income range that will provide financial security and comfort or do you work to try to general money for other reasons?
– do you buy what you buy because you’ll find happiness or because you think you ‘should” have stuff because other people have stuff?
– who do you try to impress?
Achieving happiness requires the answers to many questions but you won’t be too far off the mark if you contemplate these four questions and generate some helpful, constructive, positive answers. Best of luck and all happiness to you!
