We live in a fast paced world, especially in this country. To go along with that pace we tend to be a bit impatient. We expect quick service, easy answers, and immediate solutions. We believe, happiness should be constant and easy. We look for a pill or a doctor to fix our woes. We seek diets or lifestyles that will improve our health and state of mind. We grab onto fads and trends to make us feel good about ourselves. It seems to be all about finding the easy answer, the key to happiness.
There is no “key” to happiness. There is no one thing that will make you happy and keep you happy. Life is comprised of challenges and struggles. I do not believe that we were meant to be happy all the time, but we can be happier by choice. We can be more positive by choice. We can live a better life by choice. It takes a little determination and hard work. It is not a quick fix. There are certain things that can help us be happy in life; faith, family and health. However, each of those have challenges as well. Happiness is a process, a door to walk thru again and again every day. Happiness is a choice to make.
Stop looking for a key to happiness and walk thru the door, by choice, each and every day!
