I just want to be happy. Thought I wanted to be rich but now I realize I won't be happy selling my soul for material wealth. Back then, I thought I will be happy if and when I am rich.
Our family has a comfortable lifestyle and I really have nothing to complain about. I used to think buying luxury brands will make me happy. It didn't. The joy of flaunting my branded bag is short-lived.
So what will make me happy? Starting to randomly list down things that I am most happy doing; morning walk, going to the beach, traveling to new places, reading a great book, meeting good friends over coffee, helping others in one way or another, accomplishing at work, writing on my tweeter/blog, watching funny love movie, playing with our dog, going for bikram yoga classes, learning new skill, trying out new restaurants.
Well, I'm learning to be true to myself. I will not pretend to be someone I'm not by doing things I'm not happy with. Will I still go to a club and dance my way through the night, may be every once in a while when I feel like it. But I will no longer go just so others can think I am cool.
This is who I am and I am happy with who I am.
