Isn’t it interesting how the more you seek happiness, the more difficult it becomes? Happiness is one of those things that creeps up on you when you least suspect it. When you turn it into a purpose, on the other side, it becomes just another task you’re trying to accomplish. And, of course, it isn’t really that simple.
You don’t become ‘happy’ one day and then be done with issues for the rest of your life. It’s a day-to-day thing. Happiness is not an afterthought. Satisfaction is what it is.
We look for happiness on the exterior, neglecting the fact that it only exists on the inside. Feeling of happiness is a natural state.
External rewards, or those that come from elsewhere in ourselves, are beyond our power. Putting our pleasure in their hands is putting yourself at the hands of destiny and fortune. Happiness, on the other hand, is genuinely ours if we find it within ourselves. We can learn to take care of it.
The new property, career, romance, or vehicle will not bring you happiness, though they may temporarily divert you from your discontent. You will only be happy if you embrace joy in the present.
The issue with contentment is that no one truly understands what it entails. We all want to be satisfied, even if it’s ethereal and even a little strange. However, attempting to be cheerful is similar to attempting to relax; the harder you try, the less likely you are to succeed.
If you’re not pleased right now, you still have the ability to change things and choices, so you’ll be satisfied later. Instead of pinning your happiness on your belongings or unworthy things, how about pinning it on what makes you happy?
