There Is No Better Cosmetic For Beauty Like Happiness

I forget the actual origin of my belief, but I remember being taught at some point that happiness is not something you can obtain. It's not a commodity that can be bought or bartered. It's not something you can win in a contest. It's not some kind of prize. Rather, it is something that happens to you. It's a by-product of living a good life, and reaching worthwhile goals. If your only goal is to find happiness, you're doomed never to experience it. "Happiness" is a relative term, hence the phrase "PURSUIT of happiness". It's different for everyone. My "true happiness" is different from the next person's. Whatever makes you truly happy is your true happiness.
