You know what’s better than getting everything you want in life? Not wanting it in the first place! Boy, that’s liberating! Think about it, most of our anguish is caused by unmet desires, cravings, and longing for so many things, people, or experiences. But if we train ourselves to be grateful for what we have instead of feeling deprived of what we don’t, then happiness is not about the glass being half full instead of half empty, it’s a result of being grateful that we have a glass in the first place! Try it out sometime, and you’ll see the smiling is inevitable.
