Common Myths about Happiness


  • Perfectly said! It so true that in our quest to strive for better, we become so fixated on it that we forget to enjoy the ride! - 9/8/2012 7:32:38 PM
  • Thanks for the reminder, as much as know and believe mind over matter, sometimes I need to be kind to myself and let myself feel whatever it is that is upsetting, then move on and not feel guilty which is what I often do. I feel guilty because I am very well aware that there is always someone worse off then whatever I am experiencing at the moment. Believe me when I say, the things that upset me are not trivial but do impact the lives of me and my children, like healthcare. - 9/3/2012 8:06:12 PM

  • Great article. The world says "You deserve"..fill in the blanks.. This attitude, that happiness exist in something outside of ourselves, is a big cause of suffering. Constantly craving is a miserable state of affairs and has nothing to do with the thing sought. Learning to be, here, now, and allow what is to be, is a good way to live in peace.

    Examine craving closely. It's never what it seems to be. - 8/30/2012 3:00:06 PM
  • Awesome article! - 8/30/2012 2:37:14 PM
    Thank you for "hitting the nail on the head". All change begins with a personal committment but life does not stop while we are in the metamorphisis! We cannot base our happiness on things or plans because stuff happens and we have to find happiness in all situations. - 8/30/2012 1:21:35 PM

    Every morning when I step in the shower, I say a simple prayer that goes something like "thank you God, for whoever invented hot showers!" One of life's simple pleasures that I'm truly grateful for, and it starts out my day on a positive note! - 8/30/2012 10:38:54 AM
