Happiness is not a destination, it’s a byproduct of enjoying the journey.

If you are simply passing time or rushing through life waiting to be happy or hoping to reach some magical milestone, you are missing the point of life.

Living life to the fullest means continually reaching out for newer, richer, deeper, life-changing experiences. It means using those experiences as a means for personal growth and pushing the boundaries of yourself mentally, spirituality, and intellectually for the betterment of yourself and the world at large.”

Nor is happiness the absence of problems or challenges in life.

Challenges are an essential part of growth. Every challenge we face and overcome in life provides us with the strength necessary to handle whatever comes next. This means that it’s important to learn to appreciate both the highs and lows of life.

When you learn to appreciate contrast and accept challenges as learning experiences, you begin to see the value in all life experiences, not just the “good” ones.”
