Reflecting on our happiness, feeling it, perceiving it, being grateful for it makes us happy. To make myself aware of what I can be grateful for, what I have inside me, what I see, feel and sense.
When I really feel gratitude, what I am grateful for grows. If I make my happiness dependent on something I think I need in order to finally be happy, it will not come. Because: „it never comes to the one who needs it“.
