What is happiness?
We have the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. What IS this thing we are searching for? I think the reason that we can't find it is that we don't recognize it.
"I'll be happy when I lose fifty pounds."
So happiness comes from being thin?
"I'll be happy when I can afford a new car."
So happiness comes from new cars?
Aside for the enormous life-altering problems, what makes us unhappy?
If losing 50 pounds will make me happy, why can't I do it?
Maybe I'll be happy if I have pizza for supper.
