HAPPINESS IS – – – – –

24 12 2010

We all know what happiness is supposed to be, or we think we do.  Real happiness is not wanting anything that you don’t need.  Then you are satisfied, deep down satisfied.  I know it is important to buy whatever is shown in the latest advertisements.  But if you don’t really need it, then don’t even think about buying it.  This is called the difference between wants and needs.  If you don’t buy what you don’t need, then the credit card bills don’t go up, the house payment gets paid, the car payment doesn’t break you, and the grocery list is considerably shorter.  Give it a try.  Cut down on everything that you ‘think’ you need and just purchase what you really do need for the next 30 days.  And then see how much better your financial situation can be.  After awhile, it becomes a habit not to want so much.  

As long as my living quarters are warm in the winter and cool in the summer.  As long as my car runs. As long as I have clothes on my back.  As long as I am healthy, what else do I really need.

 Oh, and by the way, have a really Merry Christmas!  The New Year  will be even better.
