Happiness is something that everyone wants, but truly happy people are rare. Why is it so hard to find something that everyone is looking for?
Here is a flowchart that asks the question, “Are you happy?” If a person’s answer is “no”, the chart provides a very simple remedy: “Change something.”
I think the chart is meant to be funny. I laughed when I first saw it because the extreme simplicity is ridiculous. Happiness is not that simple!
However, there is some truth in this little chart. We often say, “Happiness is a choice.” It’s not just something that comes to us if we’re lucky; it’s something that we have control over. We create our own happiness with the choices we make.
Do you think happiness is a choice?
