The fireworks have faded and the 4th of July festivities are coming to a close. I find myself thinking about life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. What is it about the pursuit of happiness? What keeps us always striving for more ... of something? What if, instead, happiness is everywhere, all around us, just waiting to be found? What if happiness really is a choice? I think it is that simple. Pursuing happiness leaves us constantly chasing for something that is just out of reach. Choosing to see, to be, the happiness - the love and the beauty - that surrounds us all the time and is always present is so much simpler than persistent pursuit.
So here's to life, liberty, fireworks and Finding Felicity. I hope you enjoyed the holiday!
