Happiness Lessons

Here are a few of the best lessons I can happily share.

1. Life is tough

Agreed, life is filled with trials and tribulations. To say one is happy all the time is a lie. To know happiness is available at any time is a truth. Happiness will not wait for us. Happiness will not invite us to the party. We must invite ourselves to say, “yes,” diving deeply and happily into life… all of it… the ups, downs, twists and turns of our miraculous journey.

Society often dictates what we falsely believe creates happiness. Financial success, material wealth, finding the right partner and being part of the right group/club are some examples of external momentary happiness and amusement.
