Happiness isn’t an accident, it’s a choice. If we don’t choose happiness then we leave it up to fate and circumstances. Well guess what, there are too many people out there pulling strings and manipulating the world around them for their own self-interest to leave much happiness for you.
Happiness isn’t an emotion, it’s a way of life. If you let others own your happiness you’ll be unhappy. Period. How many people were ever truly happy letting someone else call the shots? None. Maybe they were content to settle. Maybe some people lucked out to have an easy life. But happy? Naw.
This is your life. Your choices. Your thoughts, feelings, actions and consequences. Your dreams. Go get your dreams. You will be happier, and the world will be better for it. It won’t be easy, but it will be worth it. Find peace in the process and joy in the journey. Be true to you in all things and your life will be worth it.
