Be Happy with what you do have. Look around you and see what you do have. And you will find out that you are already happy with your life. Be happy with what you do have and not be sad for what you do not have. The happiness is inside of you. And when you realize that. Than you can continue to work on what you want and need. Realizing that you do not always need what you want.

You're right! I looked around and have so much. It might not be much compared to other people but why should I compare?

As long as you have what you need than all is good.

@jstory07 I actually have more than what I need and am using my surplus to help others who are in need. It is a privilege to help the less fortunate.

I suppose that is right and seeing life that way is a better approach for sure. It does seem some are never satisfied with what they have. There's a saying "Count Your Blessings." At times I have to remind myself of that phrase cause there is always someone who most likely is worst off than me.

That's why I like the Thankful challenges I see posted on here. I don't always catch them, but I reply in them, because it reminds me to think about the things to be thankful for, even if it's minor.

I'm contented with my blessings, there are so many things that I'm thankful for that are more precious than material wealth.
