A lot of people believe that money, fame, friends or a relationship is what is going to make them happy, but then once they get those things they realize there is still something missing. For instance people who win the lottery or become famous quickly assume everything changed and life will be perfect. However, it never ends up working out quite that way, there is still something missing. In truth the only thing that can bring real happiness is to stop focusing on the past, and live in the present moment. Stop worrying over a future possibility and just live in the present moment. We can always make it through right now, it’s the suffering we put ourselves through that is so hard to live with.
