Happiness


You can't wear it
You can't purchase it
You can't drive it
You can't sell it

Yes you can't have it forever even if you try and keep it locked away!

You think you can negotiate for it but you can't.

You can't win it
You can't marry it
You can't inherit it
You can't dial 911 for it

You can only live it.

Yes happiness is not a negotiation made on a round table conference.
It isn't a promise in a bonding.
It isn't that piece of diamond that you wear on your ring.
It isn't that fancy car you drive.

But it is surely the essence of every day when you have what no one does.
You have a partner who loves you and makes ends meet for you.
You have that hug and that moment to sit and smile and treasure it forever.

Happiness is in the ebb and flow of every day living.

It is just not random enough to be acquired off a stall or rack. It isn't buried anywhere but your will which whenever wants can dig it up and make it an every day part of life.

God Bless!
