The key to happiness can be found in being content with what you have and who you are right now. You do not require anything to be content. Chances are, you already have so much to be content with. Life in itself is enough.
Regardless, people try to seek more and more in order to reach happiness, pushing contentment further down on their list of priorities. Therefore, happiness never seems to come (at least not for long). I have read, heard, and observed on many occasions that poor people are usually happier than wealthy people. Why is that? Probably because those who frantically chase wealth have forgotten what it means to be content. Nothing will ever be enough for someone with that mentality.
Make contentment a priority. It’s harder than it sounds, yes, but it is worth every bit of effort. Be thankful for the air you breathe, life, friends, having even a small place to call home. There’s so much to be content about. More material things or status in life will never get you there. It’s up to YOU to find it.
