I’m embarrassed to say that I really just learned this: people can’t make you happy. They either compliment your happiness or enhance it, but they can’t create it. Happiness starts with your desire to be happy and is sustained by your pursuit of aligning yourself with what makes your heart smile. Sometimes you don’t know what makes your heart smile, but you discover it by living life to it’s fullest. I do know this though, it begins and ends with your decision to be happy. Your happiness is NEVER in the hands of a person. If you’ve placed it there, do yourself a favor and go get it back.
