If we expect that in order to be “happy,” we must always be happy, we will only be disappointed.
If – at the end of the day – we can say we were happy more times than we were not, then indeed we are happy. If that is not the case, we need to take a look at why we are not and make changes to become so.
Happiness is my choice. No one makes me happy – and no one can take it from me.
