There are some secrets to happiness that stand the test of time.
The most important one is not to go looking for happiness.
We can never be satisfied with anything that must be pursued because even if we catch it, we will always need to chase down more of it, given time.
If we chase happiness — hedonistic or wholesome — it won’t be long before we’re itching for more.
Happiness isn’t caught.
Happiness sidles up to you at a party and pinches your bum.
Happiness slips into bed for a quick early morning cuddle.
And happiness puts wings on your ankles halfway through an evening jog.
Happiness smells like coffee and feels like sunshine, and sounds like a beach, and if you can imagine any of that right now, you already know how to uncover that “happiness” within you anytime you want.
There’s no need to go searching for happiness because it can be found anywhere we look.
