Happiness & Less

Happiness & Less

land 25 Happiness is a way station between too little and too less ~ Channing Pollock

For today’s post I decided to write about happiness and wanting less.  You see we are all always, particularly as Americans, told that more is better.  We’ll be happy when we get a bigger house, a pretty spouse, more kids, a nicer car.  But that’s not the answer; the real answer is underneath all of that.  What is it that you really need to be happy?  Does what you need to do to make you happy require that you be rich or famous?  Or is it that you simply haven’t truly addressed the question.  This is to the core of why the Ministry of Happiness was created, to help all of us, you and me, to find out the true answer to the question, what makes you happy?  What is it that you need in your life for you to live the happy and fulfilled life we all dream of living?  Simple questions, with simpler answers than you might imagine. What is necessary to find them, is for you, me and all of us to take the time to sit down and really think about and answer that question.

Below is a link to an article that addressed this question magnificently and hits the point perfectly, enjoy and have a happy day my friends:
