The journey to happiness involves finding the courage to go down into ourselves and take responsibility for what's there: all of it. 

Richard Rohr

February 15th -  on the road to happiness

You are responsible for your life, and your ultimate success depends on the choices you make. 

Denis Waitley

We have in our hands the power of choosing what we want in life.  Every choice has a consequence. By not choosing, that itself is a choice

When you blame others for what you’re going through, you deny responsibility and perpetuate the problem.  Stop giving your power away and start taking responsibility for your life.  Blaming is just another sorry excuse, and making excuses is the first step towards failure; you and only you are responsible for your life choices and decisions.

Happiness is not a feeling, it’s a choice.  Nothing can make you happy.  You are the only one who can make you happy.  Happiness doesn’t come from circumstances; it’s a choice you make,  a choice to focus on what you have, not on what you lack.

I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn't arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I'm going to be happy in it.

Groucho Marx

There is a lot of JOY to be found in the journey

So true with lots of joy to be found in the journey; I do like that quote from Groucho Marx; I like the concept of living one day at a time and living it well.
