“”Happiness is a present attitude – not a future condition“. — Hugh Prather
I can not claim to be an expert in anything, except my own personal opinion.
There was a time in my life, decades really, when I waited for external conditions to influence my happiness. Perhaps I even thought that I was happy, with the daily “partying”. Obviously, I can’t trade those years back for a do-over. And maybe in the midst of all those years, I actually was happy. It’s just that I eventually came to realize, it wasn’t the happiness I longed for.
So, the happiness I feel now, is very different than the past 30 years. It’s a simple and thankful happiness. Breathe in my nostrils, food on my plate, a clean shirt.
It’s my opinion that Hugh Prather speaks the truth. Carpe diem , jeff noel 🙂
