I love Ralph Martson.
Be the happiness
Don’t waste your time seeking to find happiness. Instead, be the happiness.
…Happiness does not come from anything outside of you. Happiness is the way you choose to be.
Yes, you can express your happiness in many wonderful ways that go far beyond you. The consequences of your inner happiness bring beauty and great value to your outer world.
Yet the happiness itself always comes from within. And you can always choose it, no matter what other things may be going on.
Instead of limiting your happiness to just certain situations, let it come alive in any situation. Instead of waiting and hoping for someone or something to bring you happiness, bring it on yourself.
Be the happiness you wish to experience. Let it flow freely from your feelings, your thoughts and your actions today, and always.
— Ralph Marston
