U: ULTIMATE HAPPINESS
To find someone who will love you for no reason, and to shower that person with reasons, that is the ultimate happiness. ~Robert Brault
Hmmm, I’m torn on this one. Maybe I shouldn’t have chosen this topic or quote for today. I’ll admit, I was finding ‘U’ a difficult letter to find a topic for. I saw this quote and thought ‘Aha! There we go.’
But now that I’m writing this post, I find myself disagreeing with it. The concept sounds delightful – after all, who wouldn’t love to find someone that will love us for no reason? And then, shower that person with reasons to love us to find ultimate happiness.
What if we never find that person?
What if we’re single? Many people are – some happy about it and others not so much.
I’m in the camp though that if we have to find happiness in another person, we’re in trouble. Myself, I believe that we need to find happiness within ourselves. And then, we are able to share that happiness and joy with others. If it has to come from an external source, if that source ever leaves or fails you – then we’re out of luck.
What do you think ultimate happiness is?
