When You Want Happiness

When You Want Happiness

“If you want happiness for a hour – take a nap.

If you want happiness for a day – go fishing.

If you want happiness for a month – get married.

If you want happiness for a year – inherit a fortune.

If you want happiness for a lifetime – help someone else.”

Chinese proverb

 

As I see it . . . . . . .

When you want happiness

 

You have to define what happiness means to you.

 

Happiness can be fleeting . . . . and leave very little in its wake.

 

Happiness can last a life time . . . . when you have the right mind set is . . . . and it’s combined with a positive attitude and reinforced with positive thinking.

 

You can be happy without a lot of money . . . . and a lot of money won’t make you happy . . . . all you’ll have is a lot of stuff.

 

When you work at being happy . . . .  things start to fall into place in your life.

 

When you enjoy your career . . . . you’ll find happiness in your career.

 

When you want happiness . . . . you have to define what happiness means to you in order to bring that happiness into your life.
