Are you unhappy about your life?
He replied, “No. I am not unhappy about my life. I am truly a very happy person. I have accepted myself. Moreover, I am enjoying every moment of my life despite lots of limitations. Happiness does not depend on traveling several countries, physical beauty, property, cars, high-paying job and a girlfriend. It depends on you. I live in the moment, lead a simple life, work hard, love my parents, spend quality time with my family and friends, explore my country, help people, meditate, run, chase my passion and do what I love to do”.
“Very little is needed to make a happy life, it is all within yourself; in your way of thinking”. – Marcus Aurelius
