As I focus on happiness in Symphony of Love’s Facebook page this weekend, this thought suddenly appeared in my mind, “If You want to be happy, look within.”
I know it sounds simple … isn’t it? As Albert Einstein said, “Make everything as simple as possible, but not simpler.” If you want to be happy, look within; happiness cannot be simpler than that.
What I could say is that ‘Things are not what they appear to be always.’ It does seem true that people, situations, circumstances, and things, etc, contribute to our happiness and unhappiness. And yes they do, but only if we allow them to. Happiness really depends on ourselves and if we want to be happy, we do not have to look elsewhere or towards others for it, we just have to look within.
What makes you happy?
