I believe that the recipe for happiness is inside us and that we are the only ones who can know what that recipe is. I’ve seen people miserable in what would be seen as ideal scenarios and I’ve seen others beaming with happiness while struggling through situations of hardship.
Happiness doesn’t present itself to be absorbed, nor does it alight upon us from the heavens. It’s not a passive agent. On occasions, win falls and strokes of good luck can flash into our lives, but they seldom stay around. I believe that happiness is created by exploring and developing one’s own potential and becoming who we want to be. Happiness rarely, if ever, frequents the lives of those who allow themselves to be channelled and controlled by others. I believe that happiness can only accompany the developing true self and that if the developing true self is denied, happiness will suffocate and expire.
