You don’t have to be a quadrillionaire
or build a business
or have a big family
or become a celebrity.

You don’t need to have a legacy
or set yourself apart from your parents
or take care of your parents
in their final senile years.

You don’t have to change the world
or your community
or even impact on others very much
– nor need you ensure your footprint is small
carbon or otherwise.

All of these
– any of them –
could be required for your path
on this plane
but none are necessary.
What’s important
is contentment.
So answer this
for yourself
and none other:
Are you happy?

You are?
Are you sure?
