In your life you have many challenges and obstacles that you have to face. Whether you want to or not it is a part of life. People seem to think that happiness is found by having money, fast cars or anything else that they might want out of life. However, sure having money would lighten the load, and take some stress off but in the end when all that money is gone where are you going to be?
I may not have money, a nice car, fancy things or everything that I want. The things that I do have is a loving family, a home to call our own, a good job, and just about everything that I could ever need at this point in my life. My children, and husband are the most important part of my life right now. Some things are just not that important to people and having lots of money is one of those things it cannot buy love or happiness. Well it can buy love and happiness if you are willing to go into debt for the rest of your life. It is true that life sometimes brings some unexpected surprises and there is nothing that you can do about it but work through those unexpected surprises no matter what the cost.
She has this question come up a lot from people. What do you give up for your children? Well the answer is quite simple we give up a lot for our children because they are the most important part of our lives. When you are a parent you cannot just take off when you feel like it, buy what you want without making sure that your children have what they need or make them go without food, water, shelter or clothes just because you found something that you want. That is not being a parent! We give up a lot because our children are the most important thing to us right now. Finding happiness in the world takes one thing and that is looking at your children and watching them become the young adults that they should be in this world. They need to know that everything does not come easy and that they cannot have everything that they want out of life unless they have a good paying job.
She watches as parents buy everything that their children want regardless of whether they have the money or not. That is giving your children the wrong aspect of the world because when they finally grow up they are going to think that they can have and do anything that they want without regards to the consequences of their actions.
So our happiness is to spend time with our family in our home. We may not have cable television, the latest game consoles, the biggest televisions or anything else. We have our love and unconditional support as a family. We make sure that we have the things that we need and everything else is optional. Unless we strike it rich from the lottery we will continue to live our life the way that we do. We do not need much except for the essential things in life.
Everyone is different and have different expectations of how they want to live their life and that is their choice. If they are happy with the way their life is going then they have found happiness in the world.
Of Course, we want more out of life but good things come to those who wait. She knows that things will work in their favor, and the wait will be worth it in the end.
