Happiness is…

Have you ever said to yourself…

“If I had more money I would be happy.”

“If I had a new car I would be happy.”

“Getting that promotion will definitely make me happy.”

“When I find someone to marry, I’ll be happy.”

Then you get that thing and…

You’re no happier than before you got it! 😯

Why is that?

Because people mistake the temporary euphoria that comes along with achieving those goals as happiness.

But happiness doesn’t take the form of a person, place or thing.

Happiness is self determined and it comes from within.

I’ve observed people that have a lot of money, things and people around them yet they are the most miserable human beings.

Conversely, when I visited India, I saw people with the most meager of living conditions with big smiles on their face. Their happiness radiated.

The lesson for me was this:

Happiness is not something you get, it’s something you are.

Happiness is finding joy within yourself in spite of circumstances.

HAPPY Wednesday! 😘
