Gift #452

The seemingly well-kept secret to happiness is that happiness has never been, nor can it ever be, about you. Happiness is not a gift from life or God or the Universe to be unwrapped like a toy on your birthday.

It’s not something you own or buy or take or horde or save or protect or keep others from taking away.

In fact, happiness works best when we are actively giving it away. Gaining happiness is largely about giving happiness.

It’s about how you serve and bless and inspire others to live more happily. It’s about making others’ happiness more important than your own, not in a self-sacrificial, I’ll-be-sad-so-you-can-be-happy martyrdom, but in the sense that by lifting others, you are lifted even higher.

“I slept and dreamt that life was joy. I awoke and saw that life was service. I acted and behold, service was joy.” ~Rabindranath Tagore
