EMBRACING LIFE




A few days a go I was scrolling through Facebook and came across an inspirational video. As I sat there and the video started to play, I thought to myself... heres another bored millennial who thinks that he has all the answers as to why people are unhappy with their lives. I totally tuned out the beginning of the video and when I went to turn it off I heard something along the lines of ... 


We are so unhappy with the things that we have, that were working ourselves to death trying to obtain what society says are "luxuries", whether that means immulating what you see on television or social media, or just envying the lives of those around you. By the time we've worked our asses off to first buy the luxury items, then there is all the work that goes into maintaining and keeping them, we've had no time to actually enjoy the luxuries we've worked so tirelessly for or the true luxuries in life like friends, family, and just the daily day-to-day. It becomes this vicious cycle of someone constantly working in order to maintain this so called life of "luxury", that eventually they forget about the true riches of life, because they are so focused on trying to keep material "luxuries". 




The words of this video really spoke to me, I can't tell you that last time I was genuinely happy because, I'm constantly thinking about how to get more "luxuries". I'm ashamed to say I'm constantly obsessing about different ways I can make money so I can get THINGS, meanwhile I have a beautiful family who I should be spending time with instead of worrying my self into a depression, because I can't obtain expensive things. Its only been a few days since I saw the video and to be honest I can't even remember the page where I saw it ... all I know is that I am determined to work on the way I think and the way I live my life.

I am learning that happiness isn't a single solitary "thing" that makes you happy but, many things that come together in ones life to create an overall feeling of happiness.





WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY?
