True happiness is hard to find. Sitting here I can say it is something you have to work up to. It does not just come like that. Like watering your own lawn, It something you have to grow. You see those great lawns and gardens now and then right? You have to work hard to get those lawns just as hard you have to work to keep them that beautiful.
The work is the fun part really, the passion you put into it. Day and night, you are on the prowl making your own little happiness, watering it, protecting it from crazy kids, etc. When it is all done, sitting, admiring it, the garden gets boring. Then you try to find a new happiness to create (Get more muscles). Or add to your current happiness (grow a few more plants). It is normal and actually expected to have more than one thing making us happy.
Life is lived better that way. But remember life is something best lived in delayed gratification or with some amount of minimalist ideal. Not everything sweet is best for your longevity. Only take on as much as you can, never the whole world or things that might harm you in the future unless you know what you are doing.
Appreciate the little things because it surprised me that these made me the most happy. Happiness in material things was heavily conditional for a simple person like me. Self-dignity I had but it was the least important thing in my life, how people saw me now was unimportant.
Being an entrepreneur I was patient, that time will come. Happy I am with my current state in life. But I can go further and will not stop here either. Unlike many, I will maintain and improve my happiness because life is funny it can take away your happiness just as quickly.
Sitting on my bottom, was never my thing I guess this is why I advanced so far in such a short time. New challenges and the happiness of winning them made me happy. That is what I am going to keep at for the future, this way of living.
