Folks are usually about as happy as they make their minds up to be.

 The Authentic Nature of Happiness

Happiness is one of those intangible, intensely personal, sometimes controversial attributes intrinsic to the human experience. You can’t truly define it for anyone other than yourself, and you can’t act your way to it. There is no path to happiness as a human-doing. The path lies in being. What you do contributes only to the extent that your choices reflect your true nature or fulfill your life’s purpose. Is your essential identity expressed through your actions?

Chasing Happiness

Happiness is not a goal…it’s the by-product of a life well-lived.

Eleanor Roosevelt

Chasing happiness only results in a tiring, unsatisfying chase. You will never arrive. Attend to this moment – what feels good to you, what feels unpleasant – these are your guideposts to constructing a life well-lived. This isn’t the normal advice you’ll get in school, or work, or community. However, it is the only way to come into possession of your unique version of happiness.

Make It A Double

One of the best ways to make yourself happy is to make other people happy. One of the best ways to make other people happy is to be happy yourself.

Gretchen Rubin

Becoming happy requires the same protocol as the emergency air mask in an airplane. You have to put it on yourself first before you can assist anyone else. If you haven’t gotten your happiness on and are leading the way, no one will benefit – not you, not them.
