97 Happy Quotes

Searching for Happiness? You're really looking for a by-product of something else because happiness isn't to be sought directly. Too often going after happiness directly will end in tears, drugs and the gutter. My advice is to do things that are worthwhile and THEN feel the contentment that follows. True happiness is when you're flourishing and thriving; it's a fleeting moment in time when your heart jumps, or you sink into a soft chair with a smile on your face. That's real happiness. Wellness or body bliss can come after a hard workout for example. Or banking a fat check comes after the hard work has already been done. So instead of looking for things that 'make you happy'; look for a meaningful pursuit and how you can help others. The by-product of that will naturally bring happiness to you. Enjoy these Happy Quotes and I hope happiness finds you today!
