“Your soul doesn’t care what you do for a living – and when your life is over, neither will you. Your soul cares only about what you are being while you are doing whatever you are doing.”
-Neale Donald Walsch
All of our lives we have believed that in the end, we would be happy. We believe that in the future we will be the happiest we have ever been and we just keep believing that because we find comfort in thinking of the future rather than dealing with the present. We believe that happiness is the ultimate goal and that we will reach it in the end. Even throughout history we have believed this. In ancient Greece writers like Sophocles incorporated the idea that the future is more important than the present in his tragedies like Oedipus Rex. In actuality, it should be the journey, not the destination that makes you happy because there is no guarantee that things will be happy and okay in the end. Instead of thinking of the future and finding comfort in it, live in the present moment. Do the thing that you’ve been nagging yourself to do, tell them how you really feel and breathe in the fresh air, surround yourself with positive vibes and smile. At the end of the day, you will know yourself that you made every moment count because you never know when that moment could be your last. I think this is why people believe in gods. They want to be happy and they find hope in religion and the worshiping of gods. People don’t sin because they think that if they don’t, they will get into heaven and be happy. Even in the Dark Ages people turned to the church for safety and comfort in their times of despair because they wanted to get into heaven, they wanted to achieve that ultimate goal of happiness. But happiness is not a destination, it is a state of mind. There’s nothing stopping you from being happy and positive every single day of your life. If you want to be happy, be.
Don’t forget to smile! (-:
