Growing up I always thought that happiness was to be found in success, fame and wealth, but at every step towards these objectives it felt like getting away from true happiness. Having started working at 14 years old I always had more than my peers, new phones, clothes, travels etc. up to 18 years old when I bought a shining Jaguar, it seemed like being on top of the world, until I discovered that none of these objects had made me much happier than I already was. Few months passed by and I started realizing that problems made me feel alive, and after overcoming them I was experiencing a feeling of profound happiness. So I started creating my own problems, constant challenges with myself to try to improve, and counter routines as much as possible trying to make things more interesting. An important component for happiness in my case was to change several jobs in search for a tailored one, jumping from one company to another and being constantly inundated with problems was the perfect fit for me, so I decided to work as a Manager. Organizing companies allows me to be more mentally active and never repeat the same task in a mechanical way, this contributes a lot to the feeling of vitality. All these ingredients make life interesting, but real happiness, or allerged to be so, started living inside me when I moved from being a member of my family to creating my own. The joy that brought me having a child has been immense, and sharing every moment with my partner made my life much more interesting and meaningful. Also not having television at home along with other devil's treats set us free to spend most of our leasure time exploring places, having long walks and flavouring the days of laughter. Yesterday the sea, today in the mountains, surrounded by idyllic sceneries and our eyes crossing pleased to have reached the highest point of our happiness. The sun has already set, but we're waiting for tomorrow for another day with the people we love, the places we call home and that feeling of deep satisfaction. After all happiness depends on being grateful for what we have..
