One of my favorite posts was about the 10 things that always me happy. (you can read it here) It’s important information to know, if only to provide us clarity on what things we should be intentionally pursuing.
But there are two sides to the pursuit of happiness. One is to spend time doing the things that make us happy, and the other is avoiding the things that make us miserable. There is one sure-fire way to unhappiness we should all be aware of:
If your happiness is dependent on other people doing things the way you want them to, your days of happiness are over.
Don’t allow someone else to control whether or not you will be happy. Pursue happiness on your terms, in ways that are within your control. Then you will have the freedom to be happy whenever you choose.
