I am not religious I don’t have a god I don’t consider myself lucky, quite the opposite actually! My life up to now has been a roller-coaster of ups and downs, right now there isn’t a person on this earth that has it better than me….I wish we had more money but would I be happier? Nope! Money is a necessity sure but it is not the reason you’re happy. I heard this today
Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money.
Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health.
And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present;
the result being that he does not live in the present or the future;
he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.â€
That Dalai Lama chap is right we do think money is everything and it really isn’t, yes we have to work and earn money to live but we don’t need as much as we think we do but we kill ourselves trying to get it?
I try to live for today and never worry about tomorrow because tomorrow may never happen and if you worry about it it doesn’t change things and you may miss today because of it! No I don’t succeed always in calmly living in the present and enjoying what I have but I do try and most of the time I allow myself to be care free and enjoy the now.
There are people in the cemetery that would do it differently if they had the chance but that will never happen. They lived their lives their way and hopefully found happiness along the way. I guess in the happiness stakes I have succeeded twice? Would I swap what I have today to celebrate 14 years of marriage, not for a second. Things happen for a reason, I am grateful for my past because it brought me to where I am today. I made a promise never to forget, and I never will even though I didn’t visit the cemetery today….
We may not be wealthy, we will always get by but as for being happy No-one has it better than me!
