What could make people happy? Hmm… let’s see… Money, spending money, buying things, owing a house, an expensive car, showing off their ‘fancy’ career, feeling important, having a ‘high’ status in their social circle, being very popular, having many friends, wearing expensive clothes, wining and dining in 5 star restaurants, having the ‘perfect children’ that are good at everything, pretending to have perfect lives. Settling for meaningless relationships, and fake friendships. ‘Great stuff.’
What really makes real people happy? Well, let’s think about it. A nice warm cup of coffee in the morning made by their loved ones, a hug, smile and a kiss when they don’t expect it, their children being healthy, achieving small goals every day, trying to become better and evolving, learning new things, loving and being loved, being respected, owing small but meaningful things. Being able to sleep smiling every night, feeling the sun in their face, laughing under the rain.

You don’t need too much of anything to be really happy. Unless it’s health and love 🙂
