If you will spend time looking for your happiness, you'll run out of time until you see yourself exhausted and frustrated. You may be able to see it but along the way, something may happen that could develop negative attitude that will produce negative consequence.
Happiness is making the most of what you have, doing your best but at the same time being contented with what you have. Coveting what is not yours is a step to become unhappy. Looking at your situation positively and finding how to be happy is the best way to be happy.

This is a great thought-provoking article, Lianne.
I rode motorcycles and I've always put this question to my readers, 'What is more important: the ride of the journey, or the destination?
The destination is where you get to where you planned to go. This is your final goal on your ride. This is the accumulation of all your efforts and planning to get to this final destination.
But, the ride of the journey. That is another story. What does it takes to get to the final destination?
Planning, scheduling, packing, preparing, gathering, starting point, number of other people going, vehicle maintainance, mapping directions and probably many other sundry things to do. And that's before the first mile.
Isn't that most important! The ride of going somewhere!
So, get on your bike of life and enjoy the ride! :lol:

Is Happiness Around the Corner?

For lots of people, happiness is just around the corner. They just need to get their degree, a particular job, a promotion, or a raise. Maybe they're waiting to get married or have a child. Perhaps they will be happy when they retire.

Alfred D' Souza said, "For a long time it seemed to me that life was about to begin. But there was always some obstacle in the way, something to be gotten through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, or a debt to be paid. Then life would begin. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life." John Lennon put it another way, "Life is what happens while you are making other plans."

The point is our lives are happening now. If we are to get the satisfaction and fulfillment we want, we have to learn to draw pleasure and joy from everything that happens to us and around us because these experiences are the very essence of our life. The more conscious we are that life consists of the journey, not the destination, the more likely we are to get the most out of it.

So, if there are things you want to do, begin to fit them in now or accept the fact that you can be happy whether or not you do them.

Happiness isn't just around the corner. It's now or it's never.

The good news is you have everything you need to be happy. Philosophers, poets, and scientists all agree it can't be attained through money, prestige, or power. Happiness is not a fact, it's a mindset. All you need is optimism and gratitude.
