Passion Party #366 - Happiness is Personal

I used to think
having the Goal of Being Happy
(as in "I want to be happy")
was a waste of time.
Kind of like saying
"I want to be angry"
instead of just getting angry.

I saw happiness as transitory
like a fluffy cloud passing in the sky
not an object to hold onto
or pursue.

Happiness is a being, not a doing
Happiness is a result, not a goal
It comes from inside
from growing tomatoes
or walking the dog
or watching people grow into their lives.

Now I know
happiness is personal.
As someone said,
"My happiness depends on me,
so you're off the hook."
