The purpose of this blog is to pursue happiness together. My aim is to share my thoughts, thoughts which i have accumulated through the experience of highs and lows in my own life, and thoughts from famous philosophers, thinkers, and humanity at large. My hope is that we can begin a dialogue, and that through discussion of what happiness is, and how we find it, that we can learn to be happy together and to help make the world a better place.

Happiness Thought for the Day - September 25, 2021, Look within yourself to create Happiness



 "The cause of my irritation is not in this person, but in me." - Anthony de Mello

If you find yourself constantly frustrated with others, and angry at an unjust world for which you blame all your troubles, then perhaps it isn't that you are irritated with the world, but with yourself. 

Only our perceptions color things as good or bad, beautiful or ugly, happy or unhappy. If we exist in a permanent state of agitation with others, we must pause and consider: what is going on in my own head or my own life that makes me frustrated or irritated? 

It isn't the world's responsibility to change to align with your thoughts and values, but rather your own responsibility to care for yourself and to learn to exist in harmony and happiness with the world around you. 

Rather than living in anger and unhappiness, try to understand and empathize with the rest of the world.
