If you want to be happy…

I found this passage that I wrote down months ago on a slip of paper while finally clearing the clutter near my computer. Doesn’t matter, though, because it’s timeless. 

This is from Martin Seligman’s book, Authentic Happiness.

“If you want to be happy 

for an hour, take a nap

for a day, go fishing

for a month, get married

for a year, get an inheritance

for a lifetime, help someone”

What more is there to say?
