The Secret about Happiness

There's no one that doesn't want to be happy.
It's everyone's ultimate goal.

'To be happy' will always be THE motive for us to do anything, even if it doesn't show.

The thing is, 'to be happy' is not easy.
It never was, it never will.


Here's why:
When you do something, you expect that you WOULD be happier when u completed it.
Take an example of you deciding to eat an ice cream:
When you bought the ice cream, you expect that your FUTURE SELF will be happy and appreciate that your CURRENT SELF is making the decision to buy and eat the ice cream.
But, you only predict that you would be happy.
There's no way for you to guarantee that you definitely will be happy.

And that's the reason why it's so hard to find happiness, because you can never be sure.
How could you know what will make you happy?

Then how?

Remember all those sayings that advises you to live in the present and not worry so much about the future?
That's the answer.

Enjoy the moment, live in the present.
Do things that makes you happy now.
And don't regret it later on, because you cannot blame your OLD SELF for failing to understand what you want now.
After all, your CURRENT SELF will have the exact same challenge to satisfy your FUTURE SELF.
And you might not be successful in doing it too.
Or, you might.
But who knows.
