Never, ever be happy?

” You will never be happy if you continue to search for what happiness consists of. You will never live life if you are looking for the meaning of life. ” by Albert Camus, (1913-1960) a French Algeria-born Nobel Prize winner. albert camus

Remember in the 60’s and 70’s people were “trying to find themselves”, the meaning of life and then they progressed to looking for happiness. I can remember hearing these sayings as they were blasted across the screens of television and movies, and of course in the lyrics of so many songs. Wonder if they ever found themselves and happiness.

Sometimes in life, we get so busy looking for something we totally miss it…living…life.  Most people wonder what is their purpose, why are they here, and that is not in itself a bad thing. It becomes bad when you fall into a deep hole over it and don’t come out. It becomes bad when you allow others to convince you of what you know isn’t true. It becomes bad when you refuse to do your part and it becomes bad when you decide to live off of others or the system.

Learn about yourself, learn about others and learn about life, through this you will find your place and its meaning. Don’t sit down and wait until you have the answer, walk out the answers. You can be happy when you love someone, and when someone loves you; you can be happy when you are a productive member of society and being a part of the solutions, not the problems. It isn’t hard to find your meaning, you just need to suit up, dig in and become all you were meant to be.happiness
