When I read this statement saying that happiness is a journey and not a destination, I was like yeah, that makes sense! For a long time I would think that in order for me to be happy, I had to conquer something, get somewhere or achieve a specific goal. Of course we are happy when we achieve our goals but it’s not just about getting there. It’s about the path that takes us there, all that we go trough and learn while we are chasing this dream. I believe that that’s actually what makes us to grow up, the experiences we go through . Some of these experiences are good, some bad, some easy to go through, some very hard but it’s the mix of all that that makes us to be the person we must be and that we wanna be. Also, happiness is not just a feeling, it’s a choice and a decision that we must make every day when we wake up. We have to say it in our minds or even out loud “Today, I will make the best of every situation that comes in my path. Today, I will be happy and I will have joy in my heart. Today, something good is going to happen in my life”.
Words are powerful! I always start my day by praying to God, by saying His word, and oh boy, that makes all the difference on how my day is going to be. I encourage you to do the same!
