This is my variation of Einstein’s quote “If you want to live a happy life, tie it to a goal, not people or things.” While I agree that’s on the right track, I’ve found that attaching satisfaction or contentment to something means I’m chasing after it. I prefer to cultivate joy in my life by practicing gratitude. This way I can be content with things as they are, not as I want them to be, wish they were, or dependent upon things that may never happen. Today I want to encourage you to find something to be grateful for and find happiness just because it exists.
What are your thoughts? Do you like the idea of cultivating a joyful life versus chasing after happiness? Did you need so see this message today? I’d love to hear from you, feel free to share in the comments!
