Happiness.

“It’s the oldest story in the world. One day you’re 17 and planning for ‘someday’. And then quietly and without really realizing it, ‘someday’ is today. And then ‘someday’ is yesterday. And this is your life.”

Often times we lay awake at night. We lay with our minds running wild, running lists in our head, ideas, places, and events we wish would occur.

Many even think that maybe in the future we will reach that goal of what we truly want in life. For most of us these ideas, perceptions we feel and want are our distant ideas of happiness. We feel that once we do a certain thing in our life, or certain things, we can finally be happy. We think of things in the future that can ultimately make us happy, that can make us believe that one day we will be happy.

What people forget and don’t realize is that often times we don’t cherish the moments standing right in front of us, whether they be good or bad. We just keep our eyes and hearts moving forward by wanting and wishing for that day to feel truly happy. Wishing, ambition, goals are good, and wanting to reach that happiness is good.

But remember…

happiness is not a destination, it is an emotion. When will we realize that happiness is a simple emotion that we feel, not a destination we must reach.

“It doesn’t matter how you plan it. It doesn’t matter how you envision it. Without even knowing it, sometimes life has a way of finding you…with exactly what you need. Or exactly who you need.”

Just a thought.
