This is for you
If who believe that you need to be something, do something, have something or reach an ideal to be happy.
Harsh reality you will never get to be happy.
True happiness comes from a sense of gratitude, been able to leave in the moment.
To enjoy live’s seemingly little blessings
Watching the sun set
Spending time with family and friends
Enjoying the evening breeze
Taking a walk and just watching the city grind to a halt.
Happiness is never meant to be chased.
It’s simply a state of mind.
Let’s say it’s more of an inward disposition to life coming from a place of contentment yet inward understanding of life’s phases and the longing for incremental progress.
So it’s not really about what happens or what is happening, it’s about the lens with which you view it.
Enjoy the expression of nature and humanity around you.
From the hug of a friend to the laughter of a child.
From the sound of rain on the roof tops to the beam of the setting sun on your skin.
There is a lot around you to be happy about.
So rather than constantly looking for what you think makes others happy so as to be happy.
Just be happy right where you are
Stop chasing happiness
It’s a wild goose chase!!
