I will be happy when I get… or by … or some other externality that is dependent upon so many things, all of which are completely out of our control.
And, if we do get whatever it is that we think will deliver the “happy” we will just attach ourselves to some other happy goal and round and around we go. Always seeking happy.
Or, we can just BE HAPPY. Happy with what we are, what we have, and the journey we are on.
It doesn’t hurt, it doesn’t cost anything, and we can do it right now.
