September 3, 2020 Category: Commentary Posted by:

Throughout my life, happiness is something that I always felt the need to be in search of, or was it something that my parents talked about because they were in search of this thing called happiness.

As my life progressed, I began to realize that happiness is not something you talk about, for it is an inner sense of self and the joy in which one exerts and lives in.

Happiness is not tangible!

Happiness is not inherited!

Happiness is not always all day, everyday!


In today’s world, many people talk about being happy and/or the happiness in which they feel.

What exactly is happiness?  And if happiness is what one possesses, then why is today’s world so messed up?

In this world, our place called life, we tend to misguide and misrepresent what happiness is all about and what it looks like.

Happiness is not found when seeking it in someone else!!

Happiness is not all the money in the world!!

Happiness is not having it done our way all the time!!

At this juncture of life’s game, happiness is definitely something that we all have to work at in order to accomplish it and maintain it.

As some of you have experienced life’s disappointments that can cause one to lose sight of happiness.

Just when you thought you fell out the happiness zone, you wake up and realize that your happiness is a lot more worthwhile than any disappointment.

Happiness is having faith in the MOTHER FATHER LORD GOD!!!

Happiness is who you are!!!

Happiness is always a part of self!!!

So the next time you feel that a search for happiness needs to take effect or you hear or see someone lacking happiness, remind yourself and them, that although happiness seems so far out of reach, just look inside of yourself and realize that you are your own happiness and it already lies within you.

Happiness is here and now!!!!

Happiness is you and me!!!!

Happiness is forever!!!! ©2006…PEACE!
