of what you think
life should be
and celebrating everything that is."
Back to the quote, happiness is something that is we talk about so much as a goal and state of being. We as a society often strive towards the things we believe will make us happy. But in that pursuit of happiness, it is common to lose sight of happiness itself. Happiness after all cannot be a permanent state of being. We all go through ups and downs in life that test our will, reveal our character, and propel our growth as human beings. With that in mind, it seems silly to chase happiness as its source is not so much the external factors of our life but the internal ones. While there are undoubtedly unhappy moments in life, those moments of sadness,anger or grief are often felt more deeply because we can recall happier times. An ability to recall and reflect on both the big and little things that have brought us joy can provide comfort in times that are less so. So our happiness is and should be kept in our hands as no one else can care as we would.
