Being happy with what you have


Americans-even those who have not had an "easy" life- should be able to come up with things to be happy about and grateful for: A family who loves them; friends who laugh at their stupid jokes; the freedom to catch a movie or play or read a good book; a great singing voice, sense of humor, or full head of hair; the fact that they live in a country not at war with any other country. Financially speaking, American's are pretty spoiled. Two-thirds of the people in the world have a standard of living that is a mere 20 percent of the U.S. average. Think about that, In other words, the average American is five times better off financially than two out of every three people in the world.
Be happy with what you have and content with the things that you can't change.I know financially wealthy people who have all the material goods they want yet are emotionally poor. Likewise, I know people who are struggling financially and are quite happy, contented, and emotionally wealthy.
