The Truth About Happiness
With a bit of humor, Coach Lucy Adams reveals the truth about happiness and its source.
You want things to be different, so what are you waiting for?
Really. What are you waiting for?
Prince Charming and Godot may very well be on their way right now. They might even be in a race to see who can get there first. And when they arrive, you’ll fling open the door and say, “Welcome. I’ve been waiting for you. You must be parched. How ’bout some sweet iced tea?”
Then you’ll peek out the door past them, and scan the landscape all the way to the horizon. Disappointedly, you’ll ask Godot and Prince Charming, “Where is happiness? Did you bring happiness?” They’ll shrug their shoulders and sip your tea.
Because no one can bring you happiness. And happiness is not on its way, set to arrive on some future date with a rap-tap on your front door.
Here’s the thing about happiness: It will never get here, no matter how patiently and persistently you wait; you will never find it, no matter how dedicated your search.
Happiness isn’t a visitor and it isn’t a destination. Happiness isn’t hidden, and it can’t be found.
Happiness is a choice. We make up our minds to be happy.
So, what are you waiting for? What needs to happen for you to make the choice to be happy?
