Happiness is not just the end, it is also the way....

Happiness is something every human seeks.

Think about it. There is no activity we pursue that, directly or indirectly, we don't think will ultimately contribute to our positivity in life.

Let's say I'm a smoker (I'm not) and I want to quit. Quitting smoking in the moment is not going to make me happy. But it is likely going to contribute to living longer and living healthier longer, both of which lead to the opportunities to experience happiness from other aspects of living....

So keep living happily as you can. It is worth to practice what you think works. Learning what doesn't work (say, shopping) is important because you can save a lot of time and money in the meanwhile.

Giving away some of that money you save, however, likely will make you feel good longer...and that's a pretty positive thing.

Let's all follow Ghandi's great message of hope: Be the change you wish to see in the world.

Be that person today.

Be that person tomorrow.

Both in terms of how you think...and also in terms of how you treat others.

You'll be impressed by the benefits.

Drop a line here to everyone know what you think....cheers :)

I also think, however, that other emotions play a very viable roll in human development. We may pursue happiness but that is not always possible and may sometimes do more harm than good.
