There is no happiness in future attainment of materials, relationships, or amounts.
If you are not happy with zero, when you have one you will just want two.
If you are unhappy without, you will find yourself unhappy with.
Being excited about a goal is different than believing happiness rests with attainment.
Life is simple.
You NEED food, water, shelter, and safety.
If you feel you NEED a want, you will struggle to find happiness.
Excitement for things in the future, yes.
But if you are not happy now, you will not be happy later.
Happiness is a feeling you find within yourself because of who you are.
Happiness is now.
Happiness is a choice.
