The Pursuit of Happiness

What is happiness? How can we obtain it? How can we keep it? Why is it so important for us to be happy?

Questions we all asked ourselves at certain points in life.

But the truth is that happiness cannot be obtained. Or bought. Or kept.

Happiness is not a destination, but a way of travel. Happiness is a choice. A way of seeing life.

Happiness is progress.

It’s not about being the best at something, but about becoming better. Each and every day.

Like most things in life, happiness requires discipline.

We must appreciate what we already have, which is easier said than done.

In such a competitive society, in this therapy culture, in which failures and problems form the foundation of most relationships, it seems almost impossible for us to be content with what we have.

Those around us will find our faults and ask us what are we going to do to fix them.

There’s nothing to fix. We are who we are. Human. Flawed.

Happiness just is. And it’s in each and everyone of us.

What we think, what we feel, what we do. Whhy we do what we do.

Happiness is an inside job, and the reason most people are unhappy is because they’re searching for happiness in all the wrong places.

  2. Wow. That’s so true. You make your own happiness and no one makes you happy. I have an ex-husband who decided after 43 years with me that he just wasn’t happy. I told him I was before and always will be. He thought it was my job to make him happy. He will never find happiness if he expects someone else to provide it. It’s been 5 years and I’m even happier. Love yourself and the rest follows.
