I have two questions for you:
- How many times per day do you find yourself wishing or hoping for something you don’t already have: more money; a skinny/healthy/different body; someone to share your bed; more time; less work?
- And how many times per day do you feel grateful for what you already have?
I’m guessing your answer to question one is a lot higher than question two.
And if it’s vice versa, then you can sit back and read this post with a self-satisfied smile on your face, Mr./Mrs. Enlightened Pants.
I’ll admit it. I spend most days chasing after the elusive “More” Bunnies. Just like real bunnies, they’re fast and multiply quickly. I can never keep up.
But I decided to do something different. Earlier this year, I found a website that offered a thirty-day challenge to focus on the things that make us happy. The kicker? We had to look at what already existed in our life.
No “More” Bunnies allowed!
So, what does it take to make you happy?
First, because I’m an English major, writer and nitpicker, we need to break this question down. You can’t be expected to give a thoughtful answer if you don’t understand the meaning of the question.
