What do you NEED to make yourself happy? I read a blog post this morning that really spoke to me. The more you know, the less you need. The blogger, Humping Heart spoke about the fact that when she really thought about it her definition of happiness was a warm cup of coffee and a good book to read. I myself have played victim of wishful thinking at times. I’ve thought, if I just made a little more money my children would have the best of everything. We would be able to take lavish vacations and never have financial issues. Happiness right? Maybe for a while.
What it all boils down to in the end for myself though is watching my children grow in good health. I feel the most joy when I watch one of my children master a new task, create a masterpiece, pretend to be a firefighter or any of the other numerous things they do daily. As much as they drive me crazy they are also what makes me the happiest in this world. I couldn’t live without them but I can live without fancy things, tropical vacations and disposable cash.
My little family is my definition of happy, what’s yours?
