Now and Then It’s Good to Pause in Our Pursuit of Happiness and Just Be Happy – Guillaume Apollinaire

In our pursuit of happiness, and with the stress that it brings to many of us, it is easy to forget what happiness is really all about. As we pursue happiness, we get so caught up in the things we need, want, or must have in order for us to be happy. This causes a huge amount of stress as we must always keep going, keep working, keep looking for that thing that will help us feel at peace.

But sometimes, all we need to do is to stop the big search and look around ourselves, in our close vicinity. Because as we pursue happiness, we become blind to the things that really matter – the things that make us truly happy right now.

Do you have a loving family? Or wonderful friends? Do you like your job? Do you have a reasonable amount of free time where you can do things you enjoy doing? Is the sun shining on you? Did you bring a delicious lunch to work that’s waiting, perhaps this very moment, to be devoured?

In your pursuit of happiness, make sure you don’t look so hard that you can’t see the forest for all the trees. Don’t take things for granted – the things that put a smile on your face or that creates that tingly feeling somewhere inside. In your pursuit of happiness, do not forget to pause and enjoy what is in this very moment. Because the secret is this: true happiness is right now.

  1. Happiness can be found in inner peace.
    This peace is attached to nothing in the universe.
    Once you have found this, you’ll know true peace, which is dependent on no external validation. Not health, wealth, family or circumstances. Certainly not tangibles.
    You are a child of the universe, the Desiderata tells us, no less than the trees and stars.
    When you can understand, know and believe this, peace is impenetrable.

    Seek peace,

    Paz

  2. Along time people tried in finding perhaps a “recipe” , some common guidelines for and to happiness, and as far as I see… it was pointless.
    That’s because happiness is in my opinion as unique as our DNA… and it all begins with us.
    Happiness is now, in each one of us… all we need to do is letting it manifest.

    We are simple beings… and happiness was meant to be simple… I mean…our pets are happy, right?

    Lovely post, congrats 🙂
