Some people have a belief that happiness must be earned by first experiencing work, hardship, and pain.
My question to them is, “How do you know when you have sustained enough pain to deserve happiness?
Happiness is not something you earn, but rather it is something you bring about. It comes from within by the thoughts you have and the choices you make. Happiness is being at peace with yourself.
“There is one sure way to find happiness. That is by controlling your thoughts.” ~ Dale Carnegie
How do you find peace with yourself so that you can have happiness?
Happiness is having the freedom, health, and opportunity to do great things for yourself and others. And happier people are healthier people, both mentally and physically.
