The final purpose of all our actions and choices is one and the same – happiness. We search it everywhere we can, it comes for free or we pay for it, we pursue it, we hunt it, we crave for it.
That’s why you save money to go on a vacation, or buy a pair of shoes, or a convertible… ok, maybe this one is just a means to get you to your happy place. You know what I’m talking about 😉 But happiness comes with the little things also: good news, a good book, getting together with friends, going dancing, a beautiful sunny morning, cotton candy (ok, I’m getting personal here :)) … Whatever puts that big grin on your face. 😀
Some, make you happy for a moment, a day, a month… or more… but if you are really lucky you might just find what could make you happy for a lifetime. Or who… The true and complete happiness comes with love. Sounds cheesy? Most possibly. Deep, down, you agree? Most probably. 😉
There is one thing to remember always. Happiness comes from within also. That’s the first place to look for it. You are as happy as you allow yourself to be.
My 2 questions for you are:
1. On a scale from 1 to 10, with 10 being rainbows & butterflies all around ( ok, happy though, not high:)), how happy are you right now?
2. What makes you happy the most?
Later edit: Here’s something I stumbled upon today – “The purpose of our lives is to be happy” (Dalai Lama)
heh, great minds think alike : )
