The luxuries of life are just illusions we create to fool ourselves into believing that we cannot be happy without them. When in reality we are perfectly capable of finding happiness in what we have.
I have many luxuries in my life which till a few years ago I was without. Sure life has become easier but they are not the key to happiness.
I think the only thing I couldn’t live without was my family. If I was marooned on an island I wouldn’t be missing my cell phone or my internet connection I would be desperately craving human interaction.
Designer clothes, designer shoes,
Luxury yachts and luxury cruise,
Expensive gadgets, pricey cigars,
Big mansions and sports cars
Do we really need any of those?
If we have our family close
Can they really make us happy?
Without the love of our family.
