Is Happiness Temporary?

It seems we are all striving for happiness but can we be permanently happy or is happiness just temporary.  I use to believe that constant, endless happiness was attainable. I think I was conditioned  to think that way, so for years I consistently yearned to be happy all the time. Not being able to achieve this brought some form of shame-is something wrong with me.

Now, I have finally come to realize that happiness is a temporary state. It’s quite unrealistic to believe that we can live in constant, endless happiness.
I’ve had my share of happy moments and also my share of bad moments. A bad moment is a bad moment. A happy moment is a happy moment. Moments are fleeting.

I think it would be more beneficial to appreciate each moment of our life and to recognize our wide spectrum of feelings than to live striving for steady, relentless happiness. I think this will bring more peace to our lives.  However,that is just my opinion.
What do you think?

    I think happiness is being real with yourself, being able to appreciate every moment and exciting memories of life. Happiness is seeing other ppl happy and loving life to the fullest, enjoying what the world have to offer.
