Your happiness is not depending on what someone else does or don’t do. Happiness is not given to you by some kind stranger, or by some higher power, or by your near and dear ones. Happiness is not a gift, but a result – a creation of your own.
Happiness can be a rainy day spent at home on the couch, watching old movies with a bowl of popcorn. Happiness can be a nice long bath until your skin goes all wrinkly. Happiness can be a walk in the woods. Happiness can be a new job or a new home. Happiness can really be anything. Simply put, anything you choose that makes you happy. Of course, it is also happiness to spend time with friends and family. But that is because you have chosen to spend time with them and to surround yourself with people who make you happy.
So never expect your happiness to come from any form of outside source, simply because it can’t. Happiness is something you create from within. It is a result of your attitude and your actions. Happiness is you allowing yourself to be happy in any moment, no matter what else is going on around you.
