Many people base their happiness on physical "things" or alignments of physicality (also called circumstances or events). The problem is, nothing in
this world is constant. Things always change; things are created and then destroyed; physical life is born and then die. Basing happiness on physical
things will always lead oneself to be tossed around and lead to short-lived happiness.
If we make our happiness based on something INTERNAL, such as, I am happy because I choose to think and act on Kindness rather than allowing my mood
to be random based on whatever seems to happen in life. Or, I am happy because I choose to love and accept everyone as who they are, rather than
letting my own negative bias, beliefs, and discomfort to get in my way. Or even, I am happy because I keep my focus on happy thoughts, then we can
always be happy because happiness can then become a CHOOSE who we CHOOSE to be.
"I don't care if people acknowledge my actions, I am happy that I acted on kindness because that is who I choose to be".
Making happiness internal will help it to last....
