We always seek happiness in outside world but where it really lies is within oneself.
Happiness is not waiting at the final destination of the jornery but it is scattered all around through out your journey and you need to pick it.
A rich man may b driving an expensive car but may be on his way to meet his therapist while a poor man on the road will be happy with little food and a place to sleep.
Dont look for a reason to be happy or a situation to justify it. When happiness comes out of nothing, you will not fear loosing it. But if the same happiness is attached to someone or something, you will fear the loss of it. As nothing can be taken away from you, you will not fear loosing. While happiness attached to someone or something makes us wonder what if the person is not there with us tomorrow or what if my expensive car gets damaged in an accident.
Expecting someone else to create happiness for you is like living in a fools land. No one can create happiness for you. All they can do is create a situation and being happy or not is in your hand. How you react to a situation makes you happy or sad.
Seek whats within you and you shall find what makes you really happy. Distance yourself from things or people who bring negativity in you and no one but you yourself can make you happy.

It was what i needed to read today. It was like a positive pep talk that each one of us needs from tkme to time to focus on real happiness . Beautiful post
Very written article. Happiness depends upon ourselves. And I am totally agree on this “Don’t look for a reason to be happy or a situation to justify it.’
Creating our happiness is in our hand, it should be that ways only.
I concur with your thoughts, but it sometimes doesn’t works. Like u said about rich and poor man, I would like to add another type of phrase- It’s better to cry in a bmw than in a bicycle.
Yes we tend to forget that foundation of the happiness lies within us. Your post shal be great reminder for many.
Happiness lies within us and we are the masters of our own destiny. Your post seems to have captured the right essence to live life peacefully.
Happiness stems from within and no matter how much material wealth one acquires, you will only be happy if you’re happy from inside. Also with mental state of mind gaining more prominence worldwide, it is important we don’t allow depression to sink in and find new and creative ways to remain happy all the time.
There is no body else who can make you other than yourself. One is responsible for their own happiness and it can be found in small things as well. People should definitely learn to be more positive and grateful which in turn leads to happiness.
