The image below is that of a hut in an Indian Village.
And the person owning this hut told me he is very happy because he can sleep peacefully, and he knows it’s real value since he comes across everyday people without a roof over their heads.
What does this teach us?
“As you get older, you’ll realise that a £250 watch and a £25 watch both tell the same time.
A Michael Kors wallet and a Primark wallet hold the same amount of money.
A £500,000 and a £100,000 house host the same loneliness.
True happiness is not found in materialistic things.” Fuad Alakbarov
Of course one need not grow old to understand this truth.
What do you think of the quote below?
“For every dollar spent on luxuries, someone somewhere goes hungry.”
in other words, are we unable to differentiate between luxury and necessity and go on wasting our money, time and energy in possessing materials for sensual pleasure?
Your necessity is someone’s luxury
While you complain about your life, there is someone dreaming of it!
What is contentment?
“Contentment doesn’t mean that I desire nothing. But rather it’s the simple decision to be happy, with what I have” Paula Rollo
But the present-day definition of ‘contentment’ is different
Everybody thinks that being popular in social media brings happiness and contentment.
The more number of followers, shares and likes, the greater the happiness!
Unfortunately you are revealing too much of yourself!
My friend, it’s a recipe for disaster!
Going offline is the true meaning of contentment.
- Offline is the ‘New Luxury’
- Offline is peace of mind.
- Offline is the new definition of happiness.
- Offline reduces your stress level.
- Offline improves family bonding
- People stopped visiting a sex therapist
- You reveal less about yourself
- You have plenty of time to attend to your personal work and ambitions.
- You an fulfill your desires in a fruitful way.
Please share your thoughts.
