“Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions.” - Dalai Lama
While we want to be happy, many of us think that happiness just happens. It doesn’t. Like everything else in life, you have to work at it. You have find things you enjoy and cultivate them, make time for them, and indulge in them.
Recently, I learned–by accident–that I enjoy hiking. And since then, I’ve been making time to get outdoors and hike. Simple, right? If you love dancing, turn on your music and dance. If you love to laugh, have a movie night filled with comedies. If you love traveling, don’t complain about taking your dream trip, find a nearby spot for a day trip. Whatever it is, find time and do it.
