I wonder what would happen if people spent less time searching for happiness and instead, simply embraced it. After all, happiness is really how we view life and what priorities we’ve set for ourselves. Chase the “dream” and you may find that happiness always seems to elude you.
“The way to happiness: Keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry. Live simply, expect little, give much. Scatter sunshine, forget self, think of others. Try this for a week and you will be surprised.” ―

“Learn to enjoy every minute of your life. Be happy now. Don’t wait for something outside of yourself to make you happy in the future. Think how really precious is the time you have to spend, whether it’s at work or with your family. Every minute should be enjoyed and savored.” — Earl Nightingale
