First of all, I think that if we live with the idea that if I could just be happy, then my life would be great, I don't think we'll ever be truly happy. What is happiness, anyways? Well, for different people, of course it means very different things. And to some, being happy is being at a party and getting wasted. But what about the consequences?? Not so happy.
I think that this 'happy' illusion that many of us pursue is just that - an illusion! I don't think that happiness is the thing that we want to be chasing after. I think that if we focus on loving God and loving those around us, then happiness will be the fruit of a life well lived. When we love and give in a healthy way, we naturally feel happy.
Let's go after healthy priorities in our lives and the happiness will follow us - we won't have to chase after it!
Now, that's what I'm talking about. Come on, happiness, see if you can keep up!!
