So many people look for the key to happiness in things outside of themselves. Matthew McConaughey explains it perfectly here:
It’s all about perspective, such as:
- Appreciating the simple things. Lavish cars and expensive gifts don’t always bring lasting joy. Feed your inner soul instead of seeking out monetary items. Do simple and rewarding things that also make you happy, like visiting an old friend or volunteering in your child’s classroom.
- Reciprocating kindness back to others. Treat others how you wish to be treated. You’ll be surprised at how happy and satisfied this can make you feel.
- Being the architect of your own life. Don’t let society force you into a mold. Be your own boss. Play the adventurous sports. Take the risk you’ve always wanted to take. You’ll be more unhappy if you never tried than if you did and failed.
What does a happy life mean to you? More money, a happy marriage, being able to help others? Leave the world a better place than when you found it and prioritize who you are over what you have. Keep up maintenance on the most important parts of your life to achieve inner happiness.
