Happiness is a By-Product

This quote has been a sort of a “mantra” for me over the last few years. If you get to know me even a little bit, you know that one of my chief goals in life is to enjoy every single moment to the best of my ability. I long to find the marvelous in the mundane and to bask in the sun, yet willingly find the silver lining.

Happiness is found en route; it’s not the goal! We find this ever elusive thing called “happiness” while we are living out our life purpose. Without revealing my age, I will tell you that I am not what most would call “old” or “mature.” I haven’t yet reached the age that rhymes with “flirty,” but I feel as if I have missed out on a large portion of my life by not grasping this truth sooner.

Life happens during the everyday!

Memories are formed out of the ordinary!

It’s in these fleeting moments that true happiness is born.

Each and every one of us has a God-given purpose and a God-given plan that is ours, and we are called to live it, to follow it, to pursue it. It is in the center of that plan that we are able to become truly and incandescently happy. “Happiness is not a goal; it is a by-product.” -Eleanor Roosevelt
