Happiness is like a butterfly. The more you chase it, the more it will elude you, but if you turn your attention to other things, it will come and sit softly on your shoulder.
If you have heard the lines, "Happiness is like a butterfly. The more you chase it, the more it will elude you, but if you turn your attention to other things, it will come and sit softly on your shoulder." you may have wondered what exactly they mean.
It can be just as difficult to find happiness and contentment as it is to catch a butterfly, and the point is that if we do not make a conscious effort to find it, we will end up being happy anyway. Life should be about spending time with those people we love, and doing the things that we like to do, and if you follow that advice, you will be happy.
In order to know what type of life will be best for us, we need to know our own hearts; we must also be prepared to take the time needed to really know ourselves. Often, sacrifice, hard work and following your dreams can all lead to a state of happiness, and if you do not adopt these approaches, you may find that happiness simply passes you by. We all want to be happy throughout our lives, and the above words can help each of us to achieve that important goal.
