In the Pursuit of Happiness

In our Declaration of Independence, it states that we have the right to pursue happiness.  But when you think about it, how many of us make a concerted effort to do that?

How do you pursue happiness or how would you pursue happiness, if you don’t now?

What are the things that make you happy?  Have you ever even thought about what it takes to make you happy?  How do you quantify that?

Wouldn’t you agree that most people don’t spend time thinking about this concept?  And wouldn’t you agree that on some level we could feel a bit guilty if we took the time to figure out what would really make us happy and then went after that?

Maybe if we spend some time figuring out what will make us happy, then those around us may feel a little happier and the feeling would spread throughout our circle of family and friends.

By each of us pursuing happiness for ourselves, it doesn’t mean that someone else won’t be able to have happiness for themselves.  There is enough for everyone.  Think abundance.

Interesting thoughts perhaps?  Is it time for you to pursue happiness?
