What Makes You Happy?

What makes you happy? Is it he feeling you get when you’re excited but scared at the same time when a thunderstorm is happening? Or when you finally see someone you haven’t in a long time and you feel that drop of your heart… That gravity pull… If you think that achieving your goals, or being in a relationship, or thinking about your future makes you happy, it doesn’t… You can’t be authentically happy about things you have no control over… We’re just happy because we know it’s the right thing to do… Being happy for the moment is what we’re all doing… Even if we’re planning ahead for our future happiness that isn’t even guaranteed… So live for now… For these moments… For these laughs… Live for lust… For those late night talks… And those forgiving hugs… Live for happiness… Live for those random walks with your friends… Live for your accomplishments… Live for YOU right now… Happiness is just loving life… So be happy…

    Often I find I’m the happiest when I’m looking forward to something. It’s like someone said in an old movie (I’ve forgot which) that coffee smells better than it tastes and similarly in life in general, the essence of something is usually better than the actual experience. I guess Plato was right.
