8 thoughts on “Happiness is the road

  1. Yes, it isn’t always so much about the destination, but the journey to get there! We never really had a chance to enjoy the ride when we were kids.

    We didn’t seem to have a set destination either, so we had no idea of where we were going to end up. I can’t remember being very happy in life; so I’m not really sure of what that would be like. I would be okay with having just the basics of food, shelter and clothing.

    Anything more would just be icing on the cake. There aren’t many places that I would like to go to, other than to visit with my daughter out West. I’m thinking that as long as she is happy, I would be happy for her and I just want her to have a chance to enjoy her life more than I ever did.

    1. Thanks Randy. Yes, absolutely. It’s more about the journey and not so much about the destination as you say. Howe we adapt, cope with and get through something is always more important.

      How we take the road dictates whether we will be successful or not the other end.

  2. Great little quote. Happiness isn’t an end, so we ought to make the ride as enjoyable as we can; and I believe we can.

    I’ve been meaning to say this for a while. I enjoy tapping into your site and reading your insightful blogs and quotes like this. To me your site is part of us aiming for happiness.

    Thanks to you, we read about what you write; we think about what we read and this empowers us to change what we need to.

    1. Thank you for your feedback. Any type of feedback helps me gage what people genuinely think about my site and what they themselves get out of it.

      It also helps me focus on more blogs to write, so that my blogs encompass a balance of how we get to live our lives. It’s great to get feedback so that I know how my blog helps others and that helps me.

      I know how my blogs help me focus, stay motivated, stay strong when times are difficult and although I cannot always gage how each day will go and what I may have to deal with, my blogs have brought more peace into my life, by showing me how to make those changes and working on change in myself.

      Adding responses to my site and reading each other’s experiences all add to us thinking about change and then change.

      With reference to the quote. Yes, I agree with you it’s important we make the ride as enjoyable as we can, otherwise the days and weeks will seem longer than they actually are.

  3. We surely pursue happiness the complicated way. Perhaps we should seek happiness in simplicity, instead of killing ourselves over nothing.

    1. Thanks Tim. Yes absolutely. That is exactly what we should do. I would just add though that it’s only when we look back that we see it was over nothing.

      At the time, it’s usually more than nothing, it’s something.Hindsight isn’t always such a good thing. Perhaps the cup needs filling.

  4. I agree Ilana. After a while you learn what’s important and what’s not; but that’s only after you wasted your time looking for what you already have.

    Perhaps we need to look into the crevice of our spirit to get an inward glimpse of things.

    1. Your last paragraph brings your response to a close Tim and is exactly spot on. It’s the soul and the spirit that pave the way to the answers we need to know.

      Unless we learn how to do that, we may always continue to make decisions that we later look back and question.
