Happiness is not a location or place to visit. It is a state of mind or emotions.

There is no need to start out looking for Happiness, it’s not something that can be found by going to a store or looking online for it. Although many people find happiness when they eat their favorite food or dessert. Some women even find happiness when they find the perfect outfit, purse or shoes. Those are short-lived things that bring Happiness.

Is the Pursuit of Happiness getting a well-paying job, the promotion that you think will help you find it? Not sure, but again those can all be short-lived things.

 In pursuing Happiness are you leaving something behind or are you cutting something out of your life trying to get to Happiness? It is worth the things that you are cutting out of your life or leaving behind? Some people don’t think about it until after it’s to late.  Are you in the Pursuit of Happiness when you are  climbing the ladder to success & you step on people to get to where you want to be, does that make you ruthless, a go-getter or are you just in the Pursuit of Happiness?

Pursuing the American Dream ( big nice house, big yard, white fence, kids & a dog); once you’ve gotten that will that make you Happy? or maybe until you realize that American Dream that you were pursuing is something that was sold to you, but it wasn’t really what you wanted.

Happiness is not something that you get in life. Happiness is something that you bring to life. ~Wayne Dyer


Be aware of what you are doing in your Pursuit of Happiness, don’t do something that you will later look back at and regret.



  1. Isn’t it funny how some things that make us happy at one point in time, fail to do so at other points in time. Nothing external can be the secret to happiness.

    Success is getting what you want, happiness is wanting what you get. ~ Dale Carnagie

  2. I loved the Wayne Dyer quote “Happiness is not something that you get in life. Happiness is something that you bring to life.” A great reminder to put the brakes on and just BE.
