Take a look around…look at what you have…are you happy? Do you have enough? Are you content with what you have? Do you want more? Do you need more? There’s a difference isn’t there?
…in a recent message from Mary she wanted us to ask these questions…because when is enough, enough. There’s a fine line between happiness and selfishness.
We seem to live in a time when instant gratification is part of the culture. Let’s face it, if there’s something that pops into your head at 2:00 am you can pretty much log on and order it right then and there. We’ve turned into a disposable culture.
Mary wanted us to think about the things in life that truly make us happy. It’s not the material possessions is it? Those are the nice to haves. It’s the things in our lives that are truly rewarding. The people, the work that we do, the impact we have on others. It’s appreciating the gifts that the universe and nature provides…as compared to the things that we can buy.
…so Mary wanted us to stop and take a look around….what are the things that we need in life and what are the things in our lives that we can do without. Look inward for your happiness…look to your loved ones…look for the gifts that nature provided…including our furry little friends :-)…look for true happiness as compared to selfishness…because usually happiness helps and heals you and others…meanwhile selfishness can harm and hurt yourself and others.
…and this is according to Mary!
