It's Your Happiness

I read something earlier today that inspired this post, "Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light". I don't know who wrote it, but I understand it. All day long by brain has been pressed about this quote. Going back and forth trying to understand and except the truthfulness in these words. I always say, happiness is never cliche answer and I truly believe that. People fight their whole life for that euphoric feeling. For the ability to be completely content, overjoyed,  and at ease, all at the same time. We exhaust ourselves fighting for this feeling, striving to live in the concept of complete happiness but I think sometimes we look for that happiness from others or material things, and you know what..... that is when we end up being unhappy. Those things only provide us with moments of happiness, short bursts of joy, a moment of escapism where our brain say "yes, I'm happy" but only for a little while and eventually we check back into reality. Once again we are in check mate waiting for the next play,  waiting to see if we get that happiness"fix" that we so desperately need. Waiting to win the game.

What I honestly believe is that we try so hard to find happiness from outside sources that we don't realize that all along we have internalized our own happiness. We have the complete power to find our happiness which extends to all aspects of life and I think often times we forget that we have that power. When you wake up, do things to promote your happiness. Surround yourself in places, ideas, thoughts and people that only add to you overall well being. We have the power, we can turn on the light. It is that simple and yet that complexed. Unfortunately it is easier said then done. Many people can wake up in the morning and say "I'm going to be happy today" and thats great. However, many of us are fighting our own battles and even just waking up can be a struggle and that's the reality of life. All we can really ever do is try our best. Just remember even in the toughest of times, It's your happiness so turn on the light.
