happiness - a choice or a destination?

a dear friend- a very wise, dear friend - said to me one evening, 'happiness is a choice.' i pondered this statement a while. it seems to me that so many of us live our lives as though an ultimate destination or nirvana will appear before us in a cloak of happiness.

do we suffer through the purgatory, the protestant work ethic, and the bondage of a profit-driven, capitalist society in exchange for the grand prize of 'happiness' ... ? or do we create our own trickles and droplets of happiness, which eventually pool into some cool-running stream and flows through our existence?

try something. mindfulness - awareness.
savour the small details over which you normally gloss.

how do you see happiness?
a choice?
a destination?
