How often have you told yourself, “Someday, I’ll be happy! I’ll have that dream job, and I’ll live in that dream house, and I’ll be happy at last!” How often have you told others that if they work hard and reach their goals, they’ll be happy? How often have you lied to yourself and to others like this?
Happiness is not a destination you can reach by achieving goals in life, or by realizing dreams. Happiness is a state of mind. You can be happy right now, no waiting! And the huge secret to how to be happy is as small and insignificant as that first taste of coffee in the morning, or that funny joke you heard from a friend, or that book you just read that made you smile. If you want to be happy now, simply BE happy. It’s a journey, a state of mind, a way of looking at the world.
