happiness is not a destination

by catarina clemente

“We’re always thinking that someday we’ll be happy; when we get that car or that job or that person in our lives that’ll fix everything. But happiness is a mood and it’s a condition, not a destination. It’s like being tired or hungry; it’s not permanent. It comes and goes but that’s okay. And i feel like if people thought of it that way, they’d find happiness a lot more often.”
