100 Reasons to be happy

 We all search for something in life. Some of us look for love, some of us look for career and success, while some of us look for money and wealth. We set our targets, we chase them and sometimes we even reach them. However, does it really make us happy when we reach them?

Can we even find a lasting happiness in love, money or career? When it comes to career and money, we know that we can always get more.

There is always more to reach and even if we reach what we want, we still want more and more. Things are a little bit more complicated when it comes to love, because no matter how strong it is in the beginning, love can slowly wear down as it stands the test of time.

As we chase our ambitions in our life, we keep hoping that finally we will be happy when we reach the income or career level we want, or find the love of our life. While we chase for our ambitions, we keep postponing happiness. Yet, we never completely feel that our ambitions are fulfilled so we never actually reach the happiness we seek.

This habit of postponing happiness, become the source of our depressions as we start to long for the happier times in our past or childhood. This darkness can even trick us into thinking that we are a failure as we cannot completely fulfil our ambitions, which means we can never be happy.

Then what are we doing wrong? How can we break this cycle? Well, the first step is separating our ambitions from the happiness. Happiness is not something we have to fight for and reach. Happiness is omnipresent. It is everywhere but we still look for it in the wrong place.

We falsely think that happiness is deeply connected with our ambitions in life. We keep assuming that we will be happy in the end and this is exactly what we do wrong. Happiness is not at the end of the rainbow. The happiness is the rainbow itself!

Happiness is realising our achievements, not regretting what we could have done. Given the chance, all of us could do anything we want. However, the story of each of us is written differently. Thus, we must embrace our destiny and be happy for things it gives to us. Otherwise, we would seek the end of the rainbow forever.
