You Will Not Find Lasting Happiness By Seeking More, But By Wanting Less

Recently, I wrote about how happiness is a lack of want. I even came up with a really good quote for myself “You will not find lasting happiness by having more and more, but by wanting less and less.” This is something that I feel warrants further discussion. I have researched and found that peak happiness …

The 8 Money Archetypes – Which One Are You?

I’ve been reading Brent Kessel’s book “It’s Not About the Money” and have found it to have some great information about money and how people approach it. One of the biggest epiphanies that I learned by reading this book is about wanting. Why people want this or that and how it relates to their happiness. We all …

The Blame Game

The Game of Blames Maybe you’ve heard of it? No, I’m not talking about the little heard Kanye West song. I’m talking about blaming other people for something going wrong in your life.

Own Your Life

The Little Things In Life I’m a firm believer that it’s the small things in life that lead you to where you are now and where you are going to be in the future. Not those “life-changing” events. Nope, just the long chain of small things that you choose to do every day. Notice that …

Forget About The Trash

Chores And Keeping Score Is A Recipe For Resentment Thursday is the day the truck comes around and picks up the trash and recycling. Well, two trucks as one does the trash and one picks up the recycling. If I can, I like to get it out and to the curb on Wednesday evening. As …

Someone Else Is Happy With Less Than What You Have

Have you ever met someone who owns far less than you but is quite rich and abundant in terms of happiness, inner peace, and serenity? If you have and you wonder why that is the case, it’s mainly because that person acknowledges the many little and large blessings they have been blessed with. They also …
