Why is everyone searching for happiness?

What makes you happy? People are always searching for that very thing. They’re looking for happiness and feel unfulfilled when they can’t find it. I think people confuse happiness with euphoria and elation.

Moments of such intense feelings of excitement are great but not necessary all of the time. Is it not enough to be content with life? I mean, if you’re not consumed with grief, gloom, and sadness, why reach for something that’s not feasibly obtainable without the use of illegal drugs?

Stop trying so hard to insert meaning into life and enjoy simply existing.

Il dolce far niente: The sweetness of doing nothing.

Life has no purpose. It’s actually kind of pointless. Don’t try to figure it out; just LIVE it! Filling your life with things and activities isn’t going to force happiness to happen. Just relax and go with the flow!

I don't believe humans truly have a purpose. Our goal is to survive until we expire. Period. Joy is pleasurable and worrying is not. Balance in life is crucial; but if the scales must tip, may they tip on the side of joy. I’m just another human trying to survive. I blog because I can and because I enjoy it, not because it serves any purpose.
