I feel like it's always been drilled into me to chase the next best thing. The better test grade, the better job, the better life. I got caught up in that pattern, expecting that once I got that "better" thing, I would be happy. I found myself saying, "if I get that job I'll be so happy", or "when I finish this, I'll be so happy". Looking back now, I realise how true it is that you need to find happiness where you are right now because if it's something you chase, you'll never end up finding it. King reminds us that happiness is something that comes from inside of us, so if you think about it – how can we chase it? The biggest thing that helps me do this is to write gratitude lists. Each night I write five things that I'm grateful for. Things as simple as, "I'm grateful that I was able to eat a hot meal today". You'll notice that as you continue to do this you'll always find something to appreciate, which can naturally put you in a happier state of mind – regardless of whether you have that "better" job or not.
