Believe You Are Happy

It isn’t what you have or who you are or where you are or what you are doing that makes you happy or unhappy. It is what you think about it.

Dale Carnegie

The scale for happiness is so often placed on possessions. People believe they will be happy when they own the biggest house with the greenest lawn and the newest, most expensive car in the driveway. Then, when they achieve that dream, they find they are no happier with those possessions than they were when they were struggling to acquire them. Happiness is not measurable by possessions. The objects of our affection do not make us happy. There will always be some object just out of grasp.

Happiness is an emotion. It is a feeling from within us. It is measurable by our thoughts and our emotions. It is not our possessions. Each person decides on their happiness. Each person defines the feeling. If you believe it, you can achieve it. Each of us thinks on our lives. Each of us thinks about the situation. Be happy. Find your happiness, within you, around you and in what you do.
