We live in an era in which it seems that everything that passes in front of us, that we see in other people or on social media, must be purchased to improve our state of happiness. By this, I mean that people tend not to settle for small things anymore, but always try to find a different way to increase their state of happiness. Sometimes even people who are happy and who have everything in life, a job, that are beautiful, that have an excellent love life, and any item of clothing, are never happy with what they have: by this, I mean that you always try to work more to have more financial resources, try to become more beautiful, change your love life and buy even the most useless things that, in the end, they are really useless. Because, in the end, nothing is more wrong than comparing happiness with having more and more things, because, in life, happiness is reached when you are happy with the little things a person has. Desiring more and more from life will take you into a vortex that will never make you happy and happy with what you have achieved in life. Every goal achieved and purchased will never be enough and you will always be looking for something to improve your state of happiness even when there is no need.

We must begin to appreciate everything we have, without paying too much attention to the quantity that we have. Quantity is a concept that is not something on which your happiness can depend, as there are people in this world who possess much fewer things than those who have wealth and fortunes and are much happier than the latter. Believing that happiness is achieved in satisfying one’s needs is the wrongest reasoning possible, as when these are not achieved, we will begin to feel unlucky and unable to react. Finding the job that makes us earn a lot, buying many things, changing our hair color every month, are things that seriously endanger our happiness, as we talk about short-term happiness, which after getting used to it, goes away, and puts us back on the run to do something else. Stop looking at others and envying them, or making them envy you for what you have because you will only give no value to what is supposed to give you happiness.

Happiness lies in enjoying and appreciating everything you have, without complaining about what you lack. Not everything in life can be perfect, but this does not imply that it is not possible to be happy with everything in your hands and everything around us. Take a walk in the mountains, look at the stars, have a chat with a stranger, devote time to your children, volunteer, dance with your partner in the living room, spend an evening at the beach, have a good laugh with friends, travel and discover new places: these are just some of the little things that really make you happy!

Therefore, begin to appreciate all the items you have at home in your closet, and rejoice in wearing them, because they are your purchases for which you have spent money, which you have earned with your beautiful work! Above all, begin to appreciate your life!
