“Happiness is a feeling of pleasure and well-being that ranges from momentary contentment to deep and abiding joy.”– Muriel and John James, Passion for Life: Psychology and the Human Spirit
We all want to be happy. How do we find happiness? How do we attract happiness into our lives? What do we do? Where do we go to find happiness? Is happiness a mental habit? Can we buy happiness? If so, how much does it cost?
You are here on earth to be happy, not to be sad. It is your choice to be happy. Yes, your choice. You can choose to be happy, or unhappy.
If you want to be happy today, right now, not next week, go out there and make someone happy. Do good to people you don’t even know. Your happiness is in your mind. Don’t look outside of yourself to search for happiness. Look inside of yourself. It is right there waiting for you.
James Freeman Clarke said, “Seek to do good, and you will find that happiness will run after you.” If you want to be happy, seek to do something good, and you will find your happiness.
Happiness is a mind game. Not outside game. If you want to be happy, look inside, not outside. Hold yourself accountable for your happiness. Always focus on happy things. Think happy thoughts. You can do that, because you are in control of your thoughts. Think about positive things.
Focus on the things that will make you happy, not things that will make you sad. Again, you are here on earth to be happy. So make yourself happy.
Live your life in positive ways. Don’t focus on the dark side of things. Focus on the positive side of things.
Remember that every day is not going to be a perfect day. If you find yourself struggling with something, focus on how you can turn it around. Focus on what will make you happy, and you will find happiness.
Finally, according to Robert Holden, “the more we pursue happiness, the more we forget how to be happy.” You can’t find happiness anywhere. It is in you.
