Happiness does not come from an abundance of wealth. Well, some money would be nice, but what is most important is the ability to make a difference and live a life that is most rewarding and meaningful. Where the simplest of life's rewards can make you happy, whereby kindness, mutual respect, unconditional love, humility and sacrifice directs the path you take in life. As we see the world around us, we see happiness in the smile of a child, the wag of a dog's tail, the purring of a cat, or simply in the kindness of a stranger. Spreading happiness onto others is satisfying, as do others unto us, it no doubt comes back to you. As we meet people we find happiness among our friends, over time the friends that are still close to you are there to fulfill your happiness, and vice versa. Sincere and meaningful friendships have a way of doing that. It is vital that your friends are real and true to you and you to them, and that they supply the most authentic happiness that is beneficial to all.

Over the years I have learned that you can pick your friends, who become part of your family. I often tell people; I get my fun and laughter from my younger friends and my wisdom and guidance from my older friends. Sometimes the reverse and everything else in between.Happiness is not restricted by unreasonable expectations, cultural barriers or pseudo behaviors and hidden agendas. As we see all that is happening around us, it makes us wonder why some people are so miserable. It is hard to understand what people are experiencing in their lives. Everyone sees good days and bad days. We all have days where we feel that we are not happy, maybe we are just going through challenging times, or just coping with never ending health setbacks like myself. Nonetheless seek out happiness and let happiness flow into your life.

Happiness comes to those who seek it, happiness flourishes only when you nurture and sustain it. Sometimes the smallest of gestures can let happiness shine through like a ray of sunlight. I tend to use humor; it helps dilute the sadness I sometimes feel and allows me to be happy regardless of the miserableness I feel at times. Being happy is not just a façade, it can be a reality for all, sometimes we all need to work at it, to foster growth and bring happiness into our lives. Our circle of friends and family plays a vital role in you finding happiness when you need it the most. Just live life to the best of your ability, and happiness will find you.
