You Have Everything You Need

A new car won’t make you happy. A new land property won’t make you happy. A new flat screen TV won’t make you happy. A new kitchen appliance won’t make you happy. A new outfit or hairdo won’t make you happy.

The latest gadget won’t make you happy. It won’t. (Maybe it will, but it’s short-term. That’s not real happiness.)

You can breathe. You can eat. You can drink. You can think. You can talk. You can walk. You can smell. You can feel. You can listen. You can learn. You can read. You can write. You can dream. You can work. You can sing. You can sleep. You can call. You can surf the Internet.

You can do everything you need to do using your current resources.

You are loved. You can love. You are appreciated. You can appreciate. You are joyful. You can make others joyful. Yes, you are. Yes, you can.

The problem is, you don’t realize it. Open your eyes. Open your mind. You don’t need to loan or spend too much.

You already have everything you need.
