There is a reason that children living in abject poverty with little hope for a better future are able to smile and laugh.

There is a reason that people with seemingly everything at their fingertips are miserable and depressed.

Happiness comes from the inside.

It is not dependent upon your circumstances.

It doesn’t come from your work or your boss.

You can’t rely on your paycheck for it.

The nice feeling that you get when you buy something special or cool is fleeting and superficial.

It’s not obtained at the gym.

It’s not based upon your relationships (although they help).

Your level of happiness is a choice you make based on your perspective of what’s happening around you.

Choose wisely.
