The Secret To Happiness Is.......

In the end it's what we all want. It is our end goal, our holy grail, the light at the end of the tunnel. Happiness! And though it is undoubtedly what we all want, many times we miss the mark by not really seeing the point.

What is "happiness"? The litteral definition is, "a state of well being and contentment".

As humans, we are in a constant state of the "pursuit of happiness" and it is a neverending race. It's my personal opinion happiness can be found in many places and we often don't notice or recognize it as it is happening. Forgive the cliche, but life is quite honestly a roller coaster of ups and downs. We all experience difficulties at one time or another and no two people are alike in their situations. Rich or poor, and no matter where you are in the world, happiness is a subjective thing. There are people in terrible life situations that manage to find happiness in the simplest things and there are some very wealthy or influential people in the world that are miserable. It's easy for people to assume someone is happy because they may have more than someone else, but there are an abundance of examples showing how that is a misconception. Some say happiness is a choice and I believe that sometimes that is true.

The pursuit of happiness feels like a pressure or an unattainable goal. Instead we should see happiness as those simple times or moments that pass by in an instant. Happiness isn't a goal, it's a state of mind. Many of us {myself included} are guilty of the "i'll be happy when". Every moment can't always be filled with happiness but that is all the more reason to recognize the fleeting morsels of joy that we all are given. Recognizing and appreciating the good things as they happen will lend strength and character that allows us to bend and not break through the tough moments.
