Our desire to be happy
June 7, 2008 3:23am CST
Human in nature is good, this is evidenced by his natural inclination to what is good, right and true. Man, by natures desires to be happy. All of our actions are geared towards the acquisition of happiness. We study because we want to be happy, we want a good job because we want to be happy, we marry because we want to be loved and be happy, we want to have a child because we want to be happy, we want to have lots of money because we want to be happy and we want to have not only a mansion but a castle because we want to be happy. In short, all things we desire and we dream to have are geared towards achieving our own happiness. Happiness continue to elude us particularly if we seek for it regularly, but if we let things happen as it is, happiness seems not hard to find at all. We desire happiness for things that we do not have and we forget the most important matter that stands up a reason to be grateful and be happy. Simple things in life are often forgotten to be cherish and once they've lost its the only time we realize that its important afterall. Its not bad to desire happiness because it is one main reason why we live for, but lets not forget the most simple things that makes other people happy. Smile, laughter, love and life alone are the real reason why we have to be grateful and be happy always. Have a nice day!!

Hi there! I would say you have struck the right idea of how we should deal with happiness. You are definitely right that we should start being grateful for the things that we have and be happy with it and not focusing on those that we do not have. Great idea my friend!
