The real secret to finding true happiness is knowing who we are, what we want and what is important to us, personally! The simple truth is that there is not one universal path to happiness because every person is different and has different dreams, visions, needs etc.
While for someone, it could be creating something and for another it's nurturing others. However, we are too often focused on the wrong goals because we listen to other people or the popular trends.
If we spend our time and energy to really concentrate on our dreams, and shut out the distractions, and feel the happiness of knowing who we truly are from the inside, you will discover that you true happiness has absolutely nothing to do with anything external but internal! Happiness is an inside thing!
