It is about the simplicity of life, I can truly relate, from traveling the world. Sometimes you have to leave luxuries behind. I went to Fiji for nine days with a backpack and everything I needed was in there. No hair products, no blow dryer, no fancy clothes or electronic devices and I have to say it was the best moments of my life. You realize how much you don’t need them and how happier you can be without them. Life in Western civilization has become way too materialistic and I have noticed from the outside in, that it has made most people too high maintenance, whiny, and overall unhappy people because of the ‘I want’ factor that drives everyday life.
Who cares? Everyone is always working soooo hard! ‘I have to save up for a car’, ‘I want a house’, ‘My kids want some I-pads and cell phones.’ Forget about all of that crap. People waste their whole lives working for something that they want… and then they waste their whole lives trying to get there. To the big position, the big salary, the big house, the nice car. Meanwhile, they don’t soak in the little moments that take you to the end. True happiness is not what you get out of ‘things’ but rather what it takes to get there… those are the best times that most in Western cultures ignore. If you think that happiness comes from what you will get in the end, I am sorry but it will be the most disappointing thing you will ever realize. Countries that aren’t as money focused have more opportunity to sulk in the simpler things in life because they don’t ignore the middle and wait for the big ending.. the big moment is every moment. This is why they are happier people.
