What makes you happy ? What would you need to make you happy enough to say that is all I ever want ? Would make you happy ,contented , relaxed, loving , a person good to be near ? A person who would then begin to see the best in others who would then be nicer to others around them and be willing to actually go out and help where possible ? The sort of person there are just not enough of in this me,me,me world where almost everyone is out only for themselves and no one else ? Could you ever be that happy and contented that you could then go out and share your happiness ? This when you think about it is an almost impossible thing to find anymore , someone who helps because they can and because they are happy and want to share , they are as they say in the classics ” as rare as hens teeth ” I cannot remember the last time I ever actually met someone like that last and it hurts that things have got this bad …..
What makes people happy if that is even possible today and trust me sometimes I really doubt it is even possible these days as people become more self centered all the time . Wonder if to be honest they even know themselves what would make them really happy given all the things that life now throws at us and as you know it sure throws a lot . We have all got to the stage where we just brace for whatever is to be thrown next and we are getting better at learning to duck but we just can’t duck everything no matter how hard we try. I know some have very unreal ideas about what would make them happy and they think and it is the first thing almost everyone thinks all we need is a lot of money give us that and all will be well and we will be very happy ..sorry to burst your bubble but that will not help at all money only buys more trouble the more money you get the more trouble you buy , once you pay your bills what else do you really need a lot of money for ?
Yes , yes I know a lot will say let’s give some to charities but , and this might amaze some , I would never ,ever advise anyone to give to any charity the worst being the Salvation Army …these so called charities put 3/4 or more of the money in their own pockets for ” administration ” and only a very tiny amount goes where it should and they totally ignore you if you dare to ask for help. So no giving money like that is all wrong so what else would you do with it ? Spoil yourself ? Spoil one or two people who you like? Alright do that then what ? Will you be happy or even more down because it just does not give you the satisfaction you think it will ? Money is almost the last thing you should crave to make you happy , so what else in your life would make you happy ? What sort of person are you deep inside ? The sort of person you are inside is what defines you and how you handle all the crap life throws the better you overcome the better you will be ..
What would make me happy ? I am a simple person who does not crave what the world craves , yes a little money would help right now enough to fix the lappy and hubbys as both are almost shot , and to pay the bills after that I am happy just to have a loving husband , wonderful children, grandchildren and great grandchildren ( yes I am that old lol ) and to know that they are all healthy and happy . Love just relaxing watching TV having a nice place to live in and not having to worry where my next meal will come from or where I will be sleeping that night . To be able to go out if we want to and go shopping if we want , nothing too much just like to keep things simple because the more we have in our lives the more it becomes complicated and then we get more trouble so yes less is more for us and we love it . I have seen too many times people who achieve all the things they think they want and in too short a time they have either wasted all of it and are now worse off or they feel isolated and alone neither one of these is good…
We must learn to take as a song once said …one day at a time and not stress over things you cannot change makes it all so much easier to handle , bit like husbands be nice to them once in a while and they are happy for ages …simples …lol ..sorry dear …..Really though we need to lower our expectations on what we think would make us happy and relax more and that alone will do the job we keep searching for , we keep trying too hard and therein lies the problem , it has taken me a lot of years to sort this out and I hope a few more will too it is much nicer …
You can’t have everything ….where would you put it ???
Condoms aren’t always protective …my husband was wearing one the other day and he still fell down the stairs ….
