by Ralph Marston -
If you chase happiness, it will run away faster than you can catch up with it.
Why is that?
Because when you strive to create happiness, that very act of striving pushes the happiness away. The more you want it, the less you have of it. Happiness is not something you can go out and get.
Real happiness does not have to depend on creating a certain set of circumstances.
Happiness is a way you can choose to be.
You can simply choose it at any time, in any circumstance. When you do, you instantly become more creative and effective, more authentic and fully alive.
Living from a perspective of happiness, you're able to live at your best because you see positive value everywhere you look.
Stop striving to get happiness and just choose to be happy, right where you are. Give your happiness to life and watch as its positive power fills your world.
