Once upon a time, there lived a young boy named Enquicken. He was the youngest of three boys, and didn’t have many opportunities to explore the world around him because he was always stuck helping the family with chores at home.
One day, Enquicken decided he was going to do something different. He wanted to explore the world, to learn new things and to meet interesting people. So, he grabbed his knapsack, some food and drinks and set off on a journey.
Enquicken traveled for days and nights, meeting new people and discovering new places. Everywhere he went, Enquicken observed his surroundings and took mental notes. He was like a sponge, soaking up all the knowledge and experiences that he encountered.
One day, he stumbled upon a small village inhabited by a poor but happy folk. He noticed that the people there were always smiling and content, despite having so little. He asked them why they were so content when their financial situation was so bleak.
The villagers told Enquicken that although money was important for their daily needs, money is not everything and that happiness should come #from within. They also shared with him their secret to contentment and joy: to want less and appreciate more.
Enquicken understood that money is important. But he had learned an invaluable lesson—that it wasn’t the most important thing in life. When he returned home, he was a changed person. He was content with all that he had, and was no longer envious of others or their possessions.
Moral of the story: Money is important for our daily needs, but it’s not the most important thing in life. Appreciate what you have and don’t be envious of others. Happiness comes from within, and learning to want less and appreciate more is the key to contentment and joy.
