The Pursuit of Happiness

As kids we are taught about our right to "Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness" from one of the most powerful documents ever written, the Declaration of Independence. But, what does that look like?  

I don't know about you, but I have it all confused. I think if only I owned a home with a pool, I'd be happy. If my kitchen floors were perfectly cleaned with no crumbs, I'd be happy. If I felt confident about myself wearing a bathing suit, at the pool, I'd be happy.  

I don't think that's what the Pursuit of Happiness really means. Jesus instructed us:  “So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today. -Matthew 6:34. 

Sometimes we get so wrapped up in the Pursuit of Happiness, we forget to pause, and just be happy.  

It's a choice. I choose to love the life I live. Would love for you to join me!
