I spent my entire 20s and 30s pursuing happiness to no avail. Every time I thought I was about to have that breakthrough, i got knocked down. My mistakes were believing that money was not important, that doing what I loved, even if no one was listening, was enough, that love conquers all, and that happiness was something that had to be pursued. Little by little and after failing many times, I realized (a.) that love is not enough if you can't provide for your family, (b) if nobody is paying for your services or products, you're not making a difference in the world, and (c.) that the more money you have, the more people you can help, including yourself. But, the most important lesson, was that happiness is a choice.
I realized that the perfect life doesn't exist, there are good days and there are bad days. I've learned how to take charge of my emotions, and to reduce stress by accepting the things I can't control and changing the ones I can. I now learn from my mistakes and I don't let others control me. I've found peace and am completely OK with life exactly as it is. I've embraced gratitude and acceptance. Happiness, I've learned, is all about balance!
