Happiness and Satisfaction from the Struggle

Sometimes happiness and satisfaction doesn’t come in arriving at your destination after a long and difficult journey, or finally getting something that you want after working hard for it for a long time.

Ironically, sometimes arriving at where you want to be or finally getting what you want doesn’t feel as happy or satisfying.  It’s possible you find out that it’s really not as happy and satisfying as you thought it would be.  It’s also possible that it was the great effort to get to such where you actually had the most fun, and now that has come to an end.

Happiness and satisfaction can come from the struggle to be where you want to be and to get what you want to get.  It can also come from the act of making the trip, or putting in the required effort to get what you wanted.

Nobody said life would be easy, but it’s also because it isn’t that it makes life exciting and meaningful.
