Chapter 2, Page 24, Book 21



Happiness depends upon ourselves.

Aristotle

February 24th - be happy



Folks are usually about as happy as they make their minds up to be.

Abraham Lincoln
   
We all want to lead a happy life, Often people believe that happiness depends on having material things like a big house and a nice car.  They struggle in the present life to reach happiness in the future, yet never manage to to find that happiness.  But happiness cannot be bought..  We find it within ourselves.  Happiness is an inside job. 

We need to enjoy the little things to make ourselves joyful.  Most of the best things in life cannot be bought.  



Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.

Mahatma Gandhi

Often people believe that happiness depends on having material things like a big house and a nice car...............

Yep, and that is far from the truth a you point out. It takes a lot of love and concern for family, friends and LIFE itself.

Love ya

What Jack said! ­čÖé (I wasn't worried, exactly. But still......)
Funny how my priorities have changed on my way to this age. Just wish my mom and dad were still around to see it.

Happiness is most definitely an inside job. So glad you are back up and running again!
