It seems like in this materialistic society that we live in today, people aren’t as happy as they could be. Maybe it’s due to the stress of wanting to be successful or what we may think is consider success in the society that we live in, what one may consider success may be considered complete failure by another, but who is anybody to say whose successful and whose not?
A lot of people seem to base success on what they have, where they live, how much money they make, the type of car they drive, and what they do for a living.
In my opinion success shouldn’t be based off what you have or what you do, it should be based off the thing’s that aren’t obtained by going to a store and purchasing something to show that you’ve achieved success.
If one doesn’t have some sense of peace with themselves, have love to give and receive, and find something that brings happiness to them, no matter how big or small, than how can one truly be successful?
In other words if you can wake up and be grateful for waking up everyday, have a positive attitude towards life on a daily basis, and at least enjoy what you do to an extent than that to me is success.
As far as being happy that takes little steps, steps to find what makes you happy, the things you “want” to do, not the things you “need” to do, because for most doing what we need to do is usually something we don’t want to do, but it’s up to the individual to do something they enjoy even if it’s something little.
“Life’s a garden, dig it”
Simply meaning do what you need to do, get the job done, but never forget about what it is you truly want to do in life, that’s the way of a garden, doing the things that are needed for it to grow and as time goes on you learn new things. A garden takes time as does life, there’s just no time to waste, and try not to stress about time, usually you’ll end never having enough of it when you stress it.
