If we’re chasing something, we’ll never be happy.
Chasing a partner
It never works out favorably.
Because we can’t calibrate when we’ve “achieved” it. And if we could, then what?
Instead, happiness should be a journey. We challenge ourselves to start something hard, we do meaningful work, and we surround ourselves with people who spark our enthusiasm and give us energy.
By making those choices, we become happier moment after moment and day after day.
Just like 10 years ago when we had no idea what would’ve made us happy today, we can’t be for certain what the following years hold.
All we can do is keep showing up every day.
There is no “X” on the map that marks the spot.
Our future terrain has never been explored before.
It’s our job to do the work every day to find our footing and forge the correct path.
