    Arrow Life is backwards .... happiness isn't something you seek .....

    ..... it's something that finds you when you are doing the right thing. It doesn't come from serving yourself, in fact unrest results from that.... you are never going to be satisfied, yet you keep trying.... buying more stuff, doing more to try and feel good... but it's never enough. Some of the richest people are the most miserable.

    It's all backwards.

    Happiness finds you when you are kind to other people, even when they don't deserve it. It finds you when you help someone out, even if it puts you behind ... you have a glow inside knowing that you're a decent human being and someone is happy because you cared to share your time or resources with them.
    I'm a firm believer and know from experience that what goes around comes back around to you.

    That will be all.

    One additional insight, zone:

    The more you chase happiness, the harder it flies away from you. When you stop chasing it, it more often than not lands on your shoulder...when you least expect it!

    Other than that, awesome!

    keep the beat goin' ... Don't keep it to yourself!

    But there's nothing wrong with building a nest for happiness to come and live in.

    Yup, happiness comes from within. Learn to love yourself and love others despite their faults (that one's easier said then done). You'll find everything else falls into place.

    The sad part is that happiness is usually short-lived. People that are happy all the time are usually in institutions.

    There has to be some bad otherwise you would never recognize the good. (Brilliant observation on my part)

    I know what it's like to be completely happy, and I know what it's like to be completely miserable. PTSD will do that to you. The worst part of it is, past the anxiety attacks etc., is the loss of "peace of mind". I wouldn't know total peace of mind if it bit me on the a$$.

    So, when you think that things are bad, trust me, they aren't. Lose your peace of mind and everything else becomes insignificant.

    Pretty much the "Golden Rule" right there. Do unto others as you'd have them do unto you. That's pretty much how I live my life. Be nice to everyone(even if they don't deserve it). That's how I find happiness and inner peace. I find that it takes a lot more energy to be a jerk and nasty.

    Well said Zone!

    To add my tuppence, regarding how 'life is backwards', I agree.

    We spend our lives accumulating materials and then can't take them with us when we die.
    I think it would make more sense to be born with enormous material wealth and then be challenged to have passed it all on by the time we, … pass on!
