The motto of my blog is to get rich in four ways Monetarily, Emotionally, Spiritually and Socially. So far, most of the time, I have only written about getting richer monetarily.
In this post I will describe the finer things in life which make you richer emotionally, and make you feel content and satisfied.
When we meet other people, mostly we talk about these finer things which make us happy and we share these with others to make them happy.
We don’t talk about how much money we have in bank or how much debt we paid off lately; and when we do, they are generally a serious discussion sans all the fun.
It is essential to be truly rich that you do feel richness from your inner soul, otherwise, money alone can’t buy you lasting happiness.
When I experience these simple things in daily life, they bring a sense of fulfillment to my otherwise thirsty soul stuck in a competitive world.
These are for free, and available every where, if you look for.
Smell of soil after first drops of rain
Seeing a droplet of water on grass
Smelling morning coffee
Smiling wife opening the door, when I return home from work
Listening to waves sitting on a beach
Watching a bird playing on a tree branch
Watching a snail trying to make its way
Watching a setting/rising sun
Listening to church choir
Getting my boss’s praise
Watching reflection of moon on a lake
Watching fall colors
Growing seeds in to plants
My favorite teams winning in a tense finish
My wife praising any thing about me
Meeting an old friend after a long time
Bathing in the ocean (Atlantic in my case)
Smelling a brand new car (someone else’s car that is 🙂 )
Finally reading through a book
Waking up on holidays and realizing its a no work day
A morning kiss
Completing all my day’s tasks
Getting an emailed thank you
Conversation with a toddler
Playing with little kids
And also, “Sunshine on my shoulders makes me happy”
There are many other finer things to enjoy in your life, what makes you happy, readers?
