Seeking happiness

“Happiness doesn’t depend on any external conditions, it is governed by our mental attitude.”

– Dale Carnegie

For so many happiness comes from external things, like work, financial rewards, status, or power.  What if that isn’t where happiness is found?  Where do you go to find it?   For some people it might mean focusing on destructive vices that medicate the heart.   For others it may be buying things, things that have no long term value but do just enough to fill a void.

Where do you find happiness?

Can you find happiness or do you create happiness?  

Do you think happy thoughts?  

Do you believe in yourself?

Is your day more positive than negative?  

What makes you happy?

Perhaps the words of Dostoevsky might help,
“Man is fond of counting his troubles, but he does not count his joys.  If he counted them up as he ought to, he would see that every lot has enough happiness provided for it. “
