Just missing the point, only just.
We say happiness is the most important thing, yet don’t really know how to be happy.
I mean truly happy, always happy, constantly happy.
Happy no matter what.
Humanity thinks happiness lies in things.
We strive to get things to make us happy, fulfilled.
Money, possessions, sex, love, holidays.
Yet they never really fulfil, do they?
No matter how hard we try, humanity never stops chasing happiness, no matter how many things we collect.
Being permanently happy always seems just around the corner.
Do you know what I mean?
Life is great, but there’s a sense there’s more.
You get angry and stressed and frustrated in the chase, when it doesn’t go right or you don't get what you want.
You forget the reason why you work, why you’re earning money, why you’re here.
You do everything simply to be happy - and yet there is always a middleman to this happiness.
I will be happy when …
… She stops being so narky.
… My boy stops misbehaving.
... I'm on holiday.
… I can finally get out on the water, the rock, the trail.
But why not be happy first?
Be filled with contentment and gratitude for life, as it is, right now.
The outdoors taught me that life is short.
That you have to make the most of it.
You have to be present and alive now, otherwise you miss out.
Make every moment of it worthwhile.
Don’t wait - there are people at the end of their lives all around the world and a huge chunk are thinking “If only I …”
Squeeze it dry.
You don’t know how long you have.
And if you want a simple means to help you get your head in the right place so you can be constantly stress and struggle free?

PS. What if there really was an end to the “endless” chase?
What if there was an end to being stressed?
What if you could be fulfilled, and content, and happy - no matter what?
You can have all of that. Truly.
