Pursuit of Happiness

"It was right then that I started thinking about Thomas Jefferson on the Declaration of Independence and the part about our right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. And I remember thinking how did he know to put the pursuit part in there? That maybe happiness is something that we can only pursue and maybe we can actually never have it. No matter what. How did he know that?" ~Pursuit of Happyness

"We tend to forget that happiness doesn't come as a result of getting something we don't have, but rather of recognizing and appreciating what we do have." ~Frederick Keonig

that is all.

Whoa. That video had me feeling a kinda way. I think I fell as many times as he did. But hey, everything that shines aint gonna be gold.

Nice post T. :)

You're so right. Its too easy to get caught in a cycle of chasing our happiness without realizing many times, its right under our noses.

I really should watch that movie, tho. Lol
