It can seem almost impossible to be happy with who we are and what we have.  We live in a constant stream of advertising, media and societal pressures that tell us how we should dress, what we should look like, how we should behave, what we should own, how much we should earn, what car we should drive (the list goes on…)   It can be tough to be happy with who we are and not feel pressure to change.
