The lost form of happiness
We search in the wrong places because we’ve been led in the wrong direction.
Most of us are in an eternal search for lasting happiness. The kind that comes in the truest form; the near impossible feat that all too many of us feel is possible. Yet, we are searching in the exact opposite direction of where it resides, which makes it ‘impossible.’
One of my most recently favored bloggers/authors is Mark Manson. He paints a clear picture of our pursuit to happiness. In his opinion, when we focus on any type of reach towards happiness; when we’re wondering what type of happiness will suit us, we’re distant from it. Whenever we harness thought towards being happy we are improperly geared.
I agree with his opinion, and the reason I bring his analogy up is because it’s true. When we are searching for happiness we are just adding another ‘want’ to the pile.
Less is more when it comes to happiness. When you want less you’ll receive more. When you appreciate what you already have you’ll be happier. And, when you understand that happiness can not be attained through any physical form you’ll find the answer to eternal happiness.
We need not be so focused so much on the actual physical realm of happiness yet gather our thoughts on just being present in the moment.
This should inspire enough thought for you to be still in your tracks and still in your mind (for a moment at least).
Happy ‘happy’ hunting!
