Do you ever ponder just what those words mean? I know several people walking this world today that just are not happy. They are looking for that someone or that something to bestow happiness upon them. The truth is, only you can make you happy. It’s a conscious choice. A decision. The pursuit.
I think when the Founding Fathers wrote these words, they had a more profound definition. Think about it. They had the forsight to see that just declaring independence was not going to solve all of their problems, but they would be able to pursue happiness.
So what are you waiting for? You are independent as a person just as we are as a nation. You have to seek your own happiness. You’re not going to find it in a bottle or a pill. You are not going to find it with a larger paycheck or more friends. You will not find it with material possessions or with the people in your life.
Happiness is your decision. Happiness is your choice. Choose to pursue happiness and accept it when you feel it.
Happy Independence Day!
