You have everything you need

You probably have everything you need to be happy.

Happiness is a feeling, a state.

It is powered by gratitude.

Which comes from perspective.

Unless, of course, you have huge amounts of stress related to everyday living expenses.

Or maybe you barely make enough money for rent and food and a little bit of fun.

The thing is that it is bullshit. People say that they only spend $10,000 a year and are happy. But how much do they make? Spending $10,000 while making $150,000 is different than spending $10,000 while making $10,000.

That mainly comes from potential for:
a large purchase to send someone into debt
the type of work being done

The real thing to be happy is a happy lifestyle.

Be rich in life. Be wealthy in life.

Be secure in finances.
