I seem to be drawn to quotes that are telling me to find happiness in the moment, rather than searching for it so hard. This one for example: “Happiness is where we find it, but very rarely where we seek it.” [J. Petit Senn]

Ooooh, I like this one, a subtle mind shift but I agree.
“The secret of happiness is not in doing what one likes, but in liking what one does.” [James M. Barrie] Do you like what you do in your everyday life?

“Now and then it’s good to pause in our pursuit of happiness and just be happy.” [Guillaume Apollinaire] Another timely piece of inspiration, about savouring the moment, being present in the now.
