on {finding} happiness

Some days happiness feels like an illusion… an intangible object dangling just beyond our grasp…
But, really, happiness is not something we must go searching high and low for… It is always staring us right in the face.  It is not a thing, but rather a state of being… an attitude of self assessment in which we agree that in spite of everything there is still so much to be thankful for.

We need not recklessly pursue it, happiness, that is,  but simply stand still and find it right where we are… Some days that is harder to do, yes, that I can admit, too.  But we must fight for it.  We must stop and simply be happy for the moment in which we are living… feeling the full width and height of our daily breath… and appreciate every tiny good thing that each day brings…
