Sometimes I found it awkward when people say “they are in pursuit of happiness”. We are born happy and happiness is innate. Happiness is not a place, things to run after or to be achieved. Happiness comes from within, “Seeking happiness outside of ourselves is like waiting for sunshine in a cave facing north” – Tibetan proverb.
No matter what your present situation is, you must have a reason to be happy still. Being happy just because – it can be anything, look around you, evaluate your life and be grateful for all you have got. Even if you have nothing to your name, being happy for the gift of life is a wonderful experience, “While there’s life, there’s hope” – Marcus Tullius Cicero.
Choosing to be happy will increase your overall productivity and keep your creative juice flowing always in your work life, you will be able to live more intentionally while doing more of the things you love. Happiness is a choice and you are responsible for your own happiness.
Happiness is not determined by what is happening around you, but rather what is happening inside you. Contentment and gratitude brings about happiness and if you are happy by yourself, you will experience great success in your life. Being grateful and optimistic always are the roots of happiness that brings success in life.
