The Truth About Finding Happiness | Plus a Giveaway That'll Certainly Make You Happy


"Happiness is a Choice".

I've been hearing this over and over agin. But what does choosing happiness really mean?

One of the things that actually gets to me is the never ending argument between people who say "Money doesn't buy Happiness" and the people that disagree with that particular school of thought. Me? I'm in between. I believe money has little to do with the issue at hand.

So what's the issue?

One word.

If you are contented with wherever you are in life, what ever you have, you'll be happy. That's the truth.

Doesn't mean one should lack ambition or motivation. It's just that if you keep on thinking "wouldn't life be better if..." you'll never find true happiness.

Humans are insatiable.

If you think, "When I become a millionaire, I'll be happy" WRONG! When you become a millionaire, you'd want to become a billionaire and then you THINK you'd be happy. It's a vicious cycle.

Aim high, aim big, but don't forget to be contented with where you are right now.

Current look...

Another thing about finding true happiness? It's the little things.

The company of your friends and/or family, looking out of the window and seeing a beautiful sight, being thankful that you were able to see another day, watching a toddler trying to walk but cutely stumbling,...

It's the little things. Take your happiness where you can find it and never play to the gallery. Don't live for what "people would say" just do you and be happy.

Lastly and perhaps most importantly, Peace of mind.

When you have a clear conscience, you'll be happy. No doubt about it. Try not to hurt people, don't hold grudges and try to tell the truth always.

The truth does indeed set one free. It's an old saying for a reason.
