Happiness (Thoughts on a Thursday)

Today, as I sit at my desk, I wonder am I truly happy.  Then, I decide to ask myself what actually dictates a person’s happiness.  Is it our significant others, our jobs, our materialistic items, or is it our education?  Maybe it’s family that gives us that feeling of happiness, but I want it to be more than a feeling.  I genuinely want to BE HAPPY.

I have heard that we may have been placed in situations that can deter us from achieving our goals in life and I definitely believe that.  The job that I have and the goals that I want to achieve do not align with each other.  I want to accomplish so much more than just making a substantial amount of money; I want the money that I make to be a REAL reflection of something I love and of the hard work that I do.

At the moment, I don’t feel like I am of use to anyone and that is probably my fault.  How does one move on from feeling like this?  Do they create their own path to success by just quitting their job or do they handle their 9-5 as well as work at their dream?  I believe that whatever life has in store for me, including this moment of uncertainty, is going to teach me a valuable lesson.  I will get through this.
