Big things in life come in small packages.
I realized this truth over and over again in these 20 years of consciousness.
No matter how many expensive gadgets or clothes that I have bought over the past two decades, the times that I have had an immense pleasure were when I received or did something meaningful, no matter how small they were.
Materialistic happiness doesn't last long. They come and go in the blink of an eye.
It's the little things like caring for your loved ones, doing little chores to help them ease up their day, or surprising them every now and then is what actually makes us happy deep inside. This is the kind of happiness that stays rooted in us.
It doesn't have to be only people, though.
If you're not much of a socialite, you can find solace in nature as well. Observing your surroundings, enjoying the beauty of this world are bound to make you feel happy.
I find that spending time with my girlfriend, have meaningful conversations and doing cute stuff together makes me the happiest.
No amount of money can beat that feeling.
While buying a new car will surely give you the thrills and make you happy for a short time, spending some quality time with your significant other and making new memories will give you a happiness that'll last a lifetime.
Your time is limited. Invest more of it in realizing the little things that matter rather than chasing some objects that won't last.
