“Happiness is an ongoing process of fresh challenges, and it takes the right attitudes and activities to continue to be happy.” Ed Diener
Happiness is not a destination nor an event. It is the journey itself, the process as opposed to a point in space or time that we can arrive at and set up camp.
It is the climb up the mountain, enjoying the effort and the sights and the companions.
If you want to be a happy camper, find the right people to go on an adventure with.
