Happy Homes – The Happiest Place On Earth?


The happiest place on earth is a very subjective term. Some say that New York City is the happiest place in the world. I would probably agree with that statement, but it isn’t the definition of happiness. Happiness is something you choose.

The Happiest Place On Earth

Is New York City really the happiest place on earth? Does it have to be that way? Will it change anything if I want to be happier? Some people may be inclined to say yes, some people may say no. Well, the sad thing is that happiness has a price.

Everyone wants to be happy and the great thing about it is that a person’s happiness is a choice. It is a choice we make. We don’t have to look anywhere else to find happiness.

You may think that places like Calcutta or Congo would be happy places, but you are wrong. Sure they can be happy places, but you don’t need to go there to be happy. You don’t have to travel to Africa in order to be happy. It can be done right in your own backyard. You do not have to go to other countries for happiness.

Look Outside Your Comfort Zone

Why should we look outside of our comfort zone to achieve more happiness? Is it not easier to make a change inside our own heads rather than sending our decisions out into the world? The truth is that change is easier inside our own heads. We can choose to be happy at home rather than looking for happiness in other places.

People will actually feel happier if they are staying at home rather than going to a friend’s house and driving to work. The fact is that you can choose the best time to be happy. And the best place to be happy is at home.

Let me give you a real example. Say you were born in 1950 and since then you have been living in a home that was built in 1906. In those years, the cost of building a home was relatively low. At that time, the housing was of high quality.

There was no garbage piled up in front of the house nor was there any garbage lying around outside. Everything was neat and tidy. No one washed their clothes in public restrooms.

If you were a member of the upper class, you would probably be living somewhere else right now. That doesn’t mean that you would be unhappy. However, you may not be in the position that you are in now.

The World Has A Lot To Offer

When I was living in San Francisco, the cost of housing was very high. Yet, because I had a job, I was able to afford my rent. A lot of people can’t afford that today. It’s not because they don’t work hard enough.

A lot of people today are working two jobs and they don’t have any money left over for spending on their happiness. They have bills to pay, cars to insure and they are constantly worrying about how they are going to get food on the table.

What is the cheapest place to live in the world? The answer is in your own backyard. You do not have to look any further than where you are right now to find happiness.
