I’ve had lots of Money and I’ve had barely enough to survive week to week, I find it interesting that generally people think that they will be happy, complete or fulfilled somehow when they have lots of money.
What I have learned is that it couldn’t be farther from the truth.
The truth is happiness is an internal job, no amount of external things will change your happiness unless you are first happy on the inside.
Money doesn’t change how you feel on the inside. Temporarily it may but then the truth surfaces and often money amplifies it.
I battled this for such a long time, no amount of money was enough, no career was satisfying enough, no amount of recognition or success was fulfilling, I was constantly pushing for more, trying to fill a void, an emptiness.
It wasn’t until I felt like I’d lost it all that I finally started working on my happiness.
Happiness for me doesn’t come from anything apart from being present, engaged and practicing daily gratitude.
It also comes from accepting yourself for who you are and that you are enough just as you are.
When you are engaged in your life (not looking over the fence or behind you), then you notice what’s right in front of you and the beauty and gifts that surround you.
Life gifts us so much to be happy and grateful for if we just stop to notice.
The trick is to find a way to be happy here and now and then it’s magical how your life really does change and we become abundant as a by product of this.
