Are you always in a race to achieving happiness? Does being happy something you pursue constantly? Or are you playing the waiting game and hope that you will reach that elusive state of happiness when you finally get whatever you don’t have or lack of?
Happiness is a state of being. It is something that we feel when we are feeling something positive, pleasant, and pure joy. However, it (happiness) being a mental state, most people find it hard to pin down and clutch at it, permanently.
When we perceive that there are things lacking in our lives, we become unhappy. We fervently hope, pray, and wait for that ‘thing’, or that ‘moment’, or even that ‘person’ to make us happy again. This, unfortunately, is the game that most people play—the waiting game.
