The pursuit of happiness
I am sure that most of us have seen Will Smith's movie entitled the same. This movie got me to thinking and I continue to debate this topic.
Does the joy of life come in the success of obtaining happiness…is it linked to the goals we set for ourselves, or is it the journey that makes us happy?
Let me break this down into one question. Is it the journey or the achievement that makes us happy?
For me happiness is having a good relationship with my wife.
Watching my daughter interact with love as she holds my 19 month old grandson.
Looking at my son and realizing, he is certainly a chunk off the ole proverbial block.
Hanging out with life long friends, playing dominoes and talking shit in the backyard, while hot lanks on the grill.
Seeing my dogs jump for joy each and every time I walk through the door of my home.
I ask myself, was I any less happy prior to achieving goals that I set for myself years ago?
I understand that life is just that LIFE. We can not be happy all the time, life has a way of throwing us curves, the old ups and down syndrome.
Can you guys please respond to this blog by telling me something, that truly makes you happy right now.
Do you think it is the journey of the achievement?
