Mistakes for happiness

“I think we all mistake certain things for happiness. I think we mistake comfort for happiness and we mistake pleasure for happiness, and entertainment for happiness, when really these are just things we use as proxies for our happiness.

We use them to cheer us up or try and achieve brief happiness, when really happiness is something much more profound and long lasting and exists within us.”

Simon Pegg

Where is your happiness? Is it a place?

Or maybe it’s a what or a who?

Finding it can be difficult or easy. It can be last a lifetime or flee faster than the feeling can register on your face.

Take a look around you. Breath deeply and slowly. Then close your eyes. Listen. Feel. Open your eyes again.

Where, what, or who is your happiness right now?

Be thankful for it. It’s not a mistake.
