Every individual has his own definition of happiness. Some find it in their jobs, some find it in their hobbies and interests. Some feel happy when they have huge assets in their bank accounts, some feel it when they just had enough money in their pockets to buy an ice-cream during summer.
We complained about lifes at times. We compare, we feel jealous, we find hatred. Children in complete families can have as many things as they want from their parents, but they are still unhappy about their parents’ nagging and complain about not having freedom. In contrary, children in orphanage can only have the little things that are donated or provided by the schools or kind people, but what they ask for is only love and warmth from their parents if only they can.
It is common to hear from people grumbling about their wages and how desperate they are to find a new job. They think that the grass is always greener on the other side. But will they stop grouching about their lifes after getting a higher-paid job? No, they will find that they have lesser self-time and spending more weekends in the office than at home.
What is the key happiness in your life? Is it health or wealth? Is it being single and having freedon, or getting married and having babies? Is it spending all your savings for travelling, or invest in more assets rather than going for holidays? No matter what it is, find it and feel good about it. There is no right or wrong in this state of happiness. Every one deserves to have it in whatever way they want it to be.
For me, it would be the happiest thing in my life to be able to travel around the world. In order to achieve that, I work hard to save enough money and I keep a healthy lifestyle. I have a circle of friends who share the same thoughts about happiness, and I try to enlarge this circle as I travel.
