“Don’t put the key to your happiness in someone else’s pocket.” – Unknown
This quote spoke to me deeply. Happiness is not something unattainable. It’s in each of our hands. We may believe that happiness is only for a few chosen people in this world, but that is absolutely not true.
Why are there People with Wealth and Fame who are Not Happy?
There was a time in my life when I believed having lots of money and success would be the solution to finding happiness. Money and stability are important, but it’s more a means for living a good life. But it doesn’t bring you happiness or peace of mind.
If that was the case, then how many times have you switched on the channel and heard things about a celebrity or public figure going through challenging times?
I used to think that having too much money was not a good thing. But that’s not right either.
When You Start Putting Your Happiness in the Hands of Someone or Something….
It’s when you put your happiness in someone or something else. You attach yourself to material possessions or money or a person. Having money or power is wonderful, but don’t make that the means for your happiness.
Derive happiness from yourself. You ARE the Source of your happiness. When you do that, no matter what is happening in your external world, you will feel secure and peaceful.
Do you feel happiness in yourself? Have you ever put your happiness in something or someone else? Please share with me in the comments.
