If asked to make a wish, what would it be?
No matter what the wish its reason is always the same.
We wish for whatever we think will make us happy.

We reminisce about “happier times.”
But yesterday is a memory, not an emotion.
It’s what was, not what is.

We wish for a brighter future.
But, does happiness live there?
One cannot hope happiness in to being.

Do you know what makes you happy?
If not, you’re destined to be without it.
You can’t experience what you don’t know.

You can’t discover happiness.
You can only live it and feel it.
You just have to know what “it” is.

Laugher is a consequence of happiness.
It is not happiness itself.
Happiness is a state of mind.

Happiness is not a commodity.
You can’t buy or sell it.
You can only experience it.

Happy people experience joy even if ill or poor.
They give pleasure by making others happy.
Happiness is spiritual - it engulfs you.

Happiness is a journey;
It is not a destination.
The best time to be happy is now.

Don’t look for happiness in the past.
Today was yesterday’s future.
Be happy now. Tomorrow may not arrive.
