Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions. – Dalai Lama
Wouldn’t it be nice if there were a store where you could go in and buy happiness? I can just see the commercials now. “Having a bad day? Down in the dumps? No need to worry. Come to the Happy Store and pick yourself up a basket of happiness!” Unfortunately, that’s not how it works. There is no handy dandy store you can stop at and pick up some happiness. Fortunately, there is something better. There is you. Happiness comes from within you, and from YOUR actions. Your happiness comes from you. Sure there are things other people may do that can impact your happiness. But in the end, only you are responsible for your happiness. So when the gloomy Gusses of the world try and bring you down, reach deep inside of yourself and do something that makes you happy. It all comes down to you and the choices you make. Make the choice and choose Happy.
