" We all know quite a number of people who have everything that it would take to be happy, and they are not happy ... because they want something else or they want more of the same. And we all know people who have lots of misfortune, and they are deeply happy.
They radiate happiness.
Why? Because they are grateful. "
- David Steindl-Rast
From money to personal belongings to significant others to success ...
... what makes you happy?
Enjoy life and all that it presents with the right frame of mind - don't let things that are insignificant be in control of whether you are happy or unhappy.
Find solace in truth, in beauty, in understanding, in kindness, and in love for those close and those who you feel are worthy along your journey. Also, please do what you love - don't let your passions get lost in your times of hardships.
