Wherever You Go, No Matter What the Weather, Always Bring Your Own Sunshine – Anthony J. D’Angelo

It’s easy to look for happiness in the things and people around us, like a job, a hobby, or a significant other. These parts of our lives do have the power to bring us happiness and vibrancy, but they can’t be our ultimate sources of happiness.

Our ultimate source of happiness has to be ourselves. This is because, during a lot of times in our life, we’ll find that our work, favorite hobby, or person we love is not in front of us at the moment.

Unfortunately, things change and we may have to part from the people or things we love. Sometimes we’ll have nothing but ourselves to carry from place to place.

If our happiness relies on things outside of us, we’ll have less control of our good feelings. However, we have more control when we focus on how to make ourselves happy. If our strongest source of happiness comes from within ourselves, it’s easier to wear a smile anywhere we go.

  1. I do believe in “carrying my own weather”. That said I believe fullness of joy is only found in God. There are times I falter and I cannot make myself joyful even about myself. That said as I am the temple of the holy Spirit (according to Paul) God’s joy is always within me and can be accessed as I throw myself on His mercy.

  2. I would have agreed with you a few years ago. I was the one that preached this to the highest mountains! I was high on making myself happy! It felt organic and true. And for healthy minds and bodies, this message is absolutely true. Conquer your happy! But, when my mind and body turned against me and I could not find my happy. Could not make the choice. Could not make my brain look to the light… I know now that this theory is only true when the brain is strong and is not steeped in depression. Thank you for sharing, keep your happy strong, my friend.

  3. For me, there is peace. It’s not so much about happy or sad, really. Life is a long, long road for most, and it is bound to be pock-marked with tragedy, sadness, loss and boredom as well as elation, excitement, gains and triumphs.
    Having come to understand my place in the cosmos, my perspective has become one of simple reality. Like so many other beings on this planet, my existence is but a flash in the context of the universe. This existence, by its very nature, will be visited by laughter, joy, pain and sorrow in varying measures, until my light goes out.
    It is the knowing that all things here are transient that brings peace.
    Cherish the highs and endure the lows, and it’s gone before we know it.
    In keeping with your post, let me express that I feel I am never alone. Wherever I go the Great Cosmos is all around me. I am a part of it as a grain of sand is a part of the beach. I feel comforted, secure. In constant company.
    And it is this that brings me joy (happiness) always.
    Any place, any time, the Cosmos assures me,
    “I’m right here.”.
