Happiness doesn’t come from things, other people, or circumstances. It must come from inside of yourself.
Just think about how someone could be really happy under certain circumstances, like traveling overseas, and yet another person could be miserable under the very same situation. So it’s not the situation, it’s the perspective of the person that determines their happiness.
This is good news! This means that we can be happy no matter what, if we decide to be.
Of course this doesn’t mean you need to be happy under every single circumstance. It just means that the choice is always yours to make.
So why not choose happiness as often as you can?
