The Constitution only guarantees the American people the right to pursue happiness. You have to catch it yourself. ~Benjamin Franklin
Good morning! Today we are going to start our morning with a simple role-play. Let’s say that tonight for dinner you want to have homemade soup You are having a craving. Your family has a craving. Everyone wants soup. Unfortunately, you don’t have a single ingredient needed to make the soup. What would you do? (I will make a guess that you will go get the ingredients.) Obviously, if you don’t go get them, you’ll never fulfill that home-made soup-craving.
Happiness is a craving that we all have. But we can’t sit and wait for it to come our way, just as the ingredients for a recipe won’t magically appear. We have to make a conscious effort to go out and “catch happiness.”
Many times throughout our day we are faced with something we want and we fulfill that want. We are thirsty – we go get something to drink. We are hungry – we go get something to eat. We want to write something down – we go get a pen. Happiness need not be any more complicated – if we want happiness, we must go get it or create it where we are.
Challenge yourself to create or catch happiness today.
I create happiness in my life.
