Quote of the Week: Happiness

Every Monday I send out a quote of the week. Here's what I sent today:
Lately, there has been much talk about the pursuit of happiness. Maybe we've been looking at the concept of happiness wrong. Is happiness something one can pursue? Perhaps, it's simply a state of being. It is a choice one makes. I choose to be happy. Yes, there are still many things I want, many things I want to do, and I am driven to strive for and do those things. Once attained, these things will allow for a better quality of life, but I can't say that they will guarantee happiness. Plus, I know I'll just want more. It's human nature.

“We tend to forget that happiness doesn't come as a result of getting something we don't have, but rather of recognizing and appreciating what we do have.” — Frederick Keonig
