This is how I found mine.

I’m writing this because I have come to realize that the most important thing to have in your possession in life is personal fulfillment and satisfaction.

If you find it, you will be one of the luckiest humans alive.

Why?

Because finding fulfillment is the key to nourishing your soul from within. And when you nourish your soul from within, you won’t need much from the outside to procure happiness, joy, and personal satisfaction.

Those who are satisfied from within need little from the outside to be happy.

The problem of humanity

Greed is one of the major cancers eating deep into men. It drives them into a lot of imaginable acts. You have lived here for long and you know the extents that greed has driven men.

Painful but true.

Trust me, those are all complications of malnourishment. Not from without, but from within.

When a man is not satisfied from within, nothing external can compensate for that soul thirst. Greed will blind him to the blessings he already has and drive him into unimaginable acts.

The problem is not a lack of money necessarily

Having touched a few bucks, I never could imagine I could but still find more joy in this thing called writing. I don't want you to believe money is your problem.

Even when I have a lot that I could get whatever I need, there were times I still felt miserable and poor.

Why?

Because money was never actually the problem.

Really.

Nourish your soul

Life is complicated.

You will never get to understand some things until you experience them.

I have said this before and I’m repeating it:

If you don’t find satisfaction within, nothing outside will compensate for it.

That’s how much it could cost if you don’t find a way to nourish your soul from within.

And how do you go about it?

Find a way to nourish your soul.

Find an activity of some sort that you love. Something that you really can lose yourself and become one with it. Something that in the process of doing it you lose track of the distractions around you and unite with the purpose behind that activity. After you find it, never let a pass without some dedicated time with it.

It can be anything.

It is different things to different people. Mine is creating content, my friends is reading novels, one of my classmates is painting some piece of art. Yours could be one or none of these.

But the result is the same: we all find fulfillment, satisfaction, and meaning every time we leave the distractions behind and unite with those activities we find joy doing.

That’s how we nourish our soul from within. It keeps greed, envy, jealousy, strife, and a lot of poisonous emotions away from our system.

That's the same thing I encourage you to do today. Find something you can do every day that will feed your soul with joy. When that happens, you wouldn't need much external pleasure to bring you happiness.

That's the source of true happiness, fulfillment, and a good life.

I hope you'll have all those in your life!

Gracia!
