“Don’t think about
what can happen in a month.
Don’t think about
what can happen in a year.
on the 24 hours in front of you
and do what you can
to get closer to where you want to be.
Today is another day
for you to start creating your own happiness.”
~ Eric Thomas
something you decide on ahead of time.
It’s a decision I make every morning when I wake up.
I have a choice;
I can spend the day in bed
recounting the difficulty I have
with the parts of my body that no longer work
or get out of bed and be thankful for the ones that do.
Each day is a gift,
and as long as my eyes open
I’ll focus on the new day and
all the happy memories I’ve stored away,
just for this time in my life.”
“Money might not *buy* happiness,
but it can afford access to things that do.
Like zero debt.
Dining out without feeling bad about the food at home.
The ability to take care of your loved ones
after you’ve taken care of yourself.
So yes. Pay me.”
~ Angel Lenise
“Never put the key to your happiness
in somebody else’s pocket.”
“Happiness is not the absence of problems,
it’s the ability to deal with them.”
~ Steve Maraboli
“We begin from the recognition
that all beings cherish happiness
and do not want suffering.
It then becomes both morally wrong
and pragmatically unwise
to pursue only one’s own happiness
oblivious to the feelings and aspirations
of all others who surround us
as members of the same human family.
The wiser course is to think of others
when pursuing our own happiness.”
~ Dalai Lama
“The secret of happiness is to admire without desiring.”
