“Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realise they were the big things.”
We’re bombarded with false and misleading images of happiness: advertisers tell us it comes from buying their products; celebrities and the media pretend it comes with beauty or fame; and politicians claim that nothing matters more than growing the economy.
Everywhere we look the story is the same: buy and achieve these things and then you’ll be happy. But remember, you’ll then need to keep getting more in order to stay happy and keep up with your peers – and if they start to get ahead then just keep consuming! On and on we go in a mindless and seemingly endless cycle.
