Real happiness does not come from the fulfillment of every
desire. You can chase an endless chain of wishes and
desires, and still manage to be unhappy.

So how and when does happiness come? It comes, quite simply,
when you allow it.

Though your life may be filled with challenges and
difficulties, still you can be genuinely happy. Whether you
are close to reaching your goals, or far away, or already
beyond them, real happiness is always close at hand.

The world and its culture may convince you that you need
this or that in order to find happiness. Yet in truth, you
need nothing other than to let it be.

Instead of waiting or longing or searching for a reason to
be happy, create for yourself a way to be happy. Something
as simple as a smile can get you started, and that’s
something you can do right now.

Let go of the notion that you must grasp for or struggle to
attain happiness, and simply let it be. That can instantly
make all the difference in the world.

— Ralph Marston
