Happiness is like a butterfly which, when pursued, is always beyond our grasp, but, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you. ― Nathaniel Hawthorne
Is your heart filled with happiness or are you chasing after it?
When you chase after happiness (or try too hard to be happy), it's just out of your reach like a butterfly. But if you make the conscious decision to be happy in everything, happiness will surround you.
Is it really that easy?
I wake up every morning thinking to myself how no matter what happens today, I choose to be happy. It's my choice to react to what happens to me. I'm responsible for my emotions and actions.
So, choose to be happy and see what a difference it is! Don't look now but there is a butterfly on your shoulder.
