How To Obtain Ongoing Happiness?

Happiness And Love Are Closely Intertwined

Some people are always smiling and seemingly happy whilst others seem to struggle their way through life. After a few decades of hard slog combined with much good fortune and a fair drizzle of mishaps I think I got a little bit more of a handle on ‘it’.

Happiness and love are closely intertwined in that firstly it is never between you and ‘them’ but always between you and your Creator. Don’t worry about ‘them’, worry about your soul and your spirit being right with your God.
And secondly happiness is similar to love in that the perks and rewards are bundled in with the giving and not with the receiving.

My little ditty on happiness

This may not be a great eye opener to anyone but it inspired me to write the following little ditty on happiness.

Happiness

In my search for happiness
Going round and round
Wanting more of it, not less,
I discovered that
once found.

The only way
to make it stay
was by giving it away.

The more I gave,
the more it grew.

The simplest formula
I ever knew.
