Life is painful, there’s no denying that. Everyone has their fair share of misery. Broken heart, empty pockets, missed goal, wasted time you name it. One way or another you can always find a reason to be sad, No matter where you look, what you think or what you do

Maybe you have some real problems

But the truth is who doesn’t. Even if you are healthy, rich, and successful you will still have problems, and one after another, problems will keep rising. That’s just how life works

Life is a constant struggle! So, if you are waiting for happy moments to happen then you might have to wait forever. Do you really think a salary raise is going to help you feel happier?

According to Warren Buffett

If you have a hundred thousand dollars and you think a million is going to make you happy, it’s not going to happen. You will look around and see people with $2 million. It doesn’t work that way.

Warren Buffett

You can chase after cars, money, or fitness all day long but in your free time, you should try to enjoy what’s left of your day. Don’t just sit there and wait for happiness to find you. Create happiness yourself
