Mindful Moment for Wednesday ~

Happiness in this world, when it comes, comes incidentally. Make it the object of pursuit, and it leads us on a wild-goose chase, and is never attained. Follow some other object, and very possibly we may find that we have caught happiness without dreaming of it. ~ Nathaniel Hawthorne

    I've never thought of it like that. We talk about the "pursuit of happiness" like a worthwhile activity, but Hawthorne's point is well taken. Happiness happens.

    Very nice! Accidental happiness. :-) It's true we never know what this world will send our way. Enjoy the moments we have!
