Things

I like most people I know, tend to get caught up in things we have or want. There’s always the dream of a mansion (or some exotic home), a car (Lamborghini, Bugatti, Ferrari, etc…) and of course, that perfect someone (physically perfect, willing to bow to our every whim…).  We seem to think by having something or someone we will automatically become happy.  I’d like to share this quote from Marcus Aurelius,

Very little is needed to make a happy life; it is all within yourself, in your way of thinking. - Marcus Aurelius

Yes, I know, I’ve found a source for quotes, but sometimes we see and hear things over and over till one day it clicks.  This one did for me.  I have a home, a car and someone who lets me be me.  Now, by knowing I have all this, it frees my mind to pursue the most noble of all things, experience and learning.  And along the way, everything gets upgraded.
