Being happy by not striving for happiness

Michael Leunig at work (2013), communicating in pictures. Melbourne, Australia

Is there much more to be said? Do I need to explain?

If I am to be briefly expansive, let me say that happiness is about the pleasure and the pain.  And carrying on regardless.

Or no one person owns the formula for happiness. Forge your own path, just be respectful of those accompanying you on your journey. 

“So now this is Christmas, and what have we done? Another year over …. “. (John Lennon). A good time to bring happiness to one and all, by our deeds, not our intentions. It’s what we do that matters.

Start that journey of joy, compassion and love, this Christmas and beyond. That being the true message of Christmas.

And many thanks to Leunig for his profound guidance.
