Happiness comes through doors you didn’t even know you left open.

BOULDER

If you observe a really happy man, you will find him building a boat,
writing a symphony, educating his child, growing double dahlias or
looking for dinosaur eggs in the Gobi Desert. He will not be searching
for happiness as if it were a collar button that had rolled under the
radiator, striving for it as a goal in itself. He will have become aware
that he is happy in the course of living life twenty-four crowded hours
of each day.
-W. Beran Wolfe

PONDER

In between speaking adventures in Wisconsin, Indiana, and Iowa, I
have been finding myself pondering the notion of helping people find
happiness. I sometimes feel like people come to hear a motivational
speech to find the “happiness secret” and even though I believe there
to be no secret (or if there IS a secret we all know it but often
forget it) sometimes I feel pressure to provide that secret. This
week, Leslie came across the above boulder and I think it serves to
remind us that happiness does not work well as a goal, it is
something that happens in the midst of your crazy life!

So, however crazy your life is this week…..don’t worry about
finding happiness…..let it find you!

Peace,
Paul
