I’ve just read the post The Only Guide to Happiness You’ll Ever Need in the zenhabits blog.

What I like more in this post is the concept is that happiness shouldn’t be the state of a moment … that happens when we reach a goal:

if we look at happiness as something that will come once we achieve certain goals — a nice home, a perfect spouse, the ultimate promotion … when we get these goals, instead of being happy, we often are looking forward to being happy when we meet our next goals

On the contrary happiness should be a continuous state that comes with us during our life:

Happiness should be here and now, who we are now, with the people we’re with now, doing the things we’re doing now

Unfortunately easier to say (and to deeply agree) then to do, doesn’t it … 🙂
