Happiness in my opinion is finding good things in your life - right here, right now. Realizing you have wonderful things all around you. So many people live their life stuck on the idea they will only be happy once they have achieved this, that and the other thing.
And when they do - they realize they aren´t happy after all. Because then they have new things to want. There´s no way they can put on a happy face - for real. They haven´t learned to like the wanting-part - the journey itself. Their mind is set on the idea they cannot be happy unless they have achieved something (or everything). The haven´t learned to find happiness in their journey towards the wanted thing.
Some say happiness is elusive. I think otherwise. Happiness is an attitude. And as such you carry the keys to happiness with you where ever you go - it is all inside your own mind. You can learn that attitude of happiness if you
By finding things to appreciate here and now you flow easier with your life - you let the river of life take you. Learn to
appreciate your life first as it is can bring almost magical results.
