As we go through life we are often afforded the opportunity to collect things or moments that contribute to a full and satisfying life. Many people choose things because they believe that is what makes them happy. Others choose to collect moments that create memories that last a life time. At the end of the day which of those do you think make for a happier person?
I like gadgets and things as much as the next person. It is funny though the things that I choose to help fulfill my life. I buy clothes and wear them for years. I would bet there are shirts in my closet that I have had for 10 years. I also like the latest gadgets and things that add to my at home experience. However, I really believe that if material things were what I based my measure of happiness on in my life, there would definitely be something missing.
What works for me is to balance things with moments. People know that I love traveling, especially with friends. Those trips create moments and memories that I draw on when I need that little life pick me up. I can’t imagine a possession of mine filling that void for me. I would venture to say that anyone that solely relies on possessions for happiness would tell you that in reality something is missing.
At the end of the day a satisfying life is about balance. When we find the things that contribute to a full life and then find the right amount of those things that balance each other, it is only then that we are able to live a life that completes us. If you feel like your life may be a little off, think about all the things that make you happy and then determine if the balance of those things is lopsided. My guess is that once you bring them all into balance, you will start to live a more rewarding, satisfying harmonious life.
Have a great day and remember to be the reason someone smiles.
