    By observation, my rich relatives are not happy unless they are buying a new home, remodeling a home, or furnishing /refurnishing a home. They have been doing this for for many decades.

    You’re right. There is nothing wrong with having nice things. People have problems finding happiness when they believe that happiness comes from having possessions, power and money. True happiness comes from within in us.

    the tables have turned for me and I have family that are trying to understand how I can be so happy with so little and right now I’ve never had more (materialistically). You make a very valid point. My things aren’t my source of happiness because I could lose/give it all away and love the journey of starting fresh. Whats that saying?… don’t wait for happiness at the end of your plan enjoy the ride there cause that’s where its at. I think I totally said it all kinds of wrong but I think I get what your saying;-)

      your so freakin right! I’m so happy that you’ve had that shift in your life! And it was the same for me, I became the happiest I’ve ever been in my entire life when I had the least amount of money I had in my life. But thank you so much for your comment 🙂

    I love this! And I agree completely! However,what’s always confused me is that I don’t know how this relates to being in a relationship. Its hard to know when you are in fact emotionally invested in a relationship. I just don’t know how to completely be whole within myself yet selfless enough to share my life with someone at the same time.
    Does that make sense?
    Does this even apply to relationships?

      I think thats really important to look at. But to be completely honest with you, I’ve never really explored that yet. I do believe that holding that perspective that “everything is working out perfectly” in all situations in life is a very healthy perspective of life. And thats just another form of detachment.

      But I’d really like to talk to you more about this though, its fun to explore new ideas and I like your mindset in your writing.

      let me know!

    very interesting view on things, and i have to say i completely agree! i’ve never thought that money can physically buy you happiness because you should already be happy with whatever you have been given. i think there is a fine line between being grateful and greedy, and i also think this video covers it well!
