Sometimes

Sometimes,
I wonder,
What's the point?
Have I a purpose?
Why am I here at all?

I've learned that true happiness comes from within. Nothing external can truly make you happy. External factors such as people, places or things can temporarily fulfill the emptiness some may feel. But the feeling will wear off at some point as soon as any negative situation occurs. Life is a gift. It's our perception of that gift that determines our state of mind. When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at will change.

I've seen this happen, especially this year.

A purpose for life? That is a question that I guess we all ponder. Hard to find a reason for fighting traffic every morning to get to a job that just barely pays the bills. Seems like I am no different that the squirrels that collect nuts for the winter. I have the life and liberty thing down. However, I am struggling with the pursuit of happiness.

I'm seeking happiness too.

What makes you happy?

To be able to do more.
