These wise words came from my vet, but, over the years I came to realize that they apply even more to humans than they do to pets. Although happiness means different things to different people, we all want it. But, happiness is not our birthright.
We have to search for happiness, think of ways to lure it into our life, maybe even fight for it. And if we are lucky enough to find it, we must always remember that it is like a delicate flower – it needs to be nurtured in order to last.
Philosophers have pondered about the idea of happiness for ages, and the more I think about it the more I feel that being happy is an art. And the true masters of happiness are those who not only manage to be happy despite the challenges that life presents, but also try to spread happiness around.
