I recently read a great book by Canadian author Will Ferguson called Happiness™.

As the title suggests it’s about the pursuit of happiness — more specifically, the finding of it. It got me thinking. What makes me happy? And I realized pretty quickly that it had nothing to do with money or fame. I’m happy hanging out with my friends having a good laugh over nothing. I’m happy sitting with my family enjoying a movie that we can debate about. I’m happy hearing my Amazon parrot singing in the shower! Take the time to know yourself, and then pursue the things that really make you smile.

Keep in mind…

We all live with the objective of being happy; our lives are all different and yet the same. — Anne Frank

Happiness belongs to the self-sufficient. — Aristotle

Happiness comes when your work and words are of benefit to yourself and others. — Buddha

There are as many nights as days, and the one is just as long as the other in the year’s course. Even a happy life cannot be without a measure of darkness, and the word ‘happy’ would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness. — Carl Jung

If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion. — The Dalai Lama

When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us. — Helen Keller

That man is richest whose pleasures are cheapest. — Henry David Thoreau

The mind is its own place, and in itself, can make heaven of Hell, and a hell of Heaven. — John Milton

It’s pretty hard to tell what does bring happiness. Poverty an’ wealth have both failed. — Kin Hubbard

The greatest part of our happiness depends on our dispositions, not our circumstances. — Martha Washington

Good Reading!
