Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself: 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.
The amount of happiness that you have depends on the amount of freedom you have in your heart.
Thich Nhat Hanh
Happiness is a perfume you cannot pour on others without getting a few drops on yourself.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Happiness is never stopping to think if you are.
Nobody really cares if you're miserable, so you might as well be happy.
Happiness often sneaks in through a door you didn't know you left open.
Often people attempt to live their lives backwards; they try to have more things, or more money, in order to do more of what they want, so they will be happier. The way it actually works is the reverse. You must first be who you really are, then do what you need to do, in order to have what you want.
Margaret Young (one of my all time personal favorites, jd)
We tend to forget that happiness doesn't come as a result of getting something we don't have, but rather of recognizing and appreciating what we do have.
The best vitamin to be a happy person is B1.
Most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be.
Have a happy one!
