three things that make me happy

Objectively three things make me happy.

coffee, books and money.

But coffee sometimes makes me spend more than I should. Or makes my sleep harder.

Books sometimes make me frustrated when I cannot finish it. Or when I found it boring.

Money makes me happy. But it also makes me want to spend more, which will then make me unhappy

Being happy is such an overrated feeling. It is an overstatement — especially when that chemical explosion you feel just makes you feel so bad later. When the high is too high, the fall is going to be epic too.

So I am asking myself, would be content is the key here? How to make peace with everything that is happening around you, whether it makes you happy or unhappy?
