• All too often we berate ourselves because we are not happy. Happiness becomes the goal we are pushing ourselves towards, but that we never truly reach. We think there is something wrong with us if we are not in a heightened state of bliss twenty four hours a day, seven days a week. Our focus becomes oriented towards the absence of happiness; and so the absence of happiness is all we get. So stop measuring yourself next to happiness. Instead, seek to feel just a little bit better from wherever you are emotionally at this very moment
