Traveler: “What kind of weather are we going to have today?”
Shepherd: “The kind of weather I like.”
Traveler: “How do you know it will be the kind of weather you like?”
Shepherd: “Having found out, sir, I cannot always get what I like, I have learned always to like what I get. So I am quite sure we will have the kind of weather I like.”
Genuine happiness pertains to contentment. When you are contented with the job you have, with your family, your friends, the place you live in, your car, and all the things that you now have, you will be happy.
Happiness does not emanate from the wealth, money, position, or anything else, but it comes from what you already have in life. If you love what you have, whatever it is, then your life must be full with happiness every day.
Happiness is a mental habit, a mental attitude, and if it is not learned and practiced in the present, it is never experienced.
Quote: “A man is happy so long as he chooses to be happy and nothing can stop him.” – Alexander Solzhenitsyn
