On Happiness

"Happiness isn't coins that you can save and spend.

You cannot withold the feeling, imaging that one day, some day, you'll experience all of it at one go. It isn't like pieces of sweets. It isn't a holiday or home that you save up for. By not feeling joy today, do you imagine that you can save it up and experience ecstasy in a distant future?

It cannot be delayed. It cannot be saved then spent.

It requires practice. You learn to be happier by feeling incrementally joyful each day. It is a muscle that must be exercised, lest it atrophy.

Learn to be happy. For only in learning so, will you be happy."
