Pursuit of Happiness
What is happiness? One may have all the things he desires but is not happy. One may have nothing but is spiritually rich. "Happiness lies in contentment" may sound like a cliche but, in my opinion, is very very true. A dream job, money, delicacies, fancy dresses, reputation... They do make me happy..for a while... but I still feel down once in a while. At that moment, I'll start wondering if kids will complete me. But do I really want kids? Or I'm just pursuing something I don't have. Groucho Marx said, "Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself: I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn't arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I'm going to be happy in it." Maybe not thinking too much is the key to happiness.
