There is nothing wrong with you if you aren’t happy all the time. No one can be happy all the time. In fact, a temporary feeling of giddiness or being high on life is often mistaken for happiness.
True happiness is more of an inner peace thing.
Money can buy a lot of things, but after your basic needs are taken care of, the upgrades that come with an increase in income really don’t make that much of a difference.
A famous Princeton study in 2010 found that emotional well-being did not increase for people making over $75,000. In 2021, a study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences found that this number had ticked upward to $85,000. But the point is the same: earning anything over that amount apparently has very little effect on your happiness quotient.
When you start making demands and deals with yourself to allow happiness into your life, you are signing your life away.
These are when-contracts: "When I get what I want, then I can be happy.” The problem is that the finish line is a moving target, as life is ever-changing and so are your desires.
This is perhaps the most common myth we tell ourselves about happiness, but nothing could be further from the truth.
Love is the best thing on the planet, and it is also the most painful, so brace yourself. Be careful about what you ask for.
Everything has a life cycle, and feelings of fulfillment are no different.
You will need to seek different kinds of fulfillment as your life changes and your body ages. And unhappiness, like happiness, is only temporary.
Instead of seeking happiness, feel the contentment in your life. It’s easier to find, and it lasts much longer.
When our lives are actually out of control, we feel stress. When they are not out of control, we may create our own stress by pushing ourselves to be happy, and it is quite taxing on the soul.
Things can never be like they were. The entire world is traumatized, and we don’t yet know what normal is going to look like.
This time is not about trying to be happy. It’s about learning to love and enjoy what we have.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
