ON BEING HAPPY…..
“Universally people think happiness is a stroke of luck……
Something that will descend upon you like fine weather if you are fortunate enough……
But that is not how happiness works. Happiness is the consequence of personal effort. You must fight for it, strive for it, INSIST upon it, travel the world for it.
You have to participate relentlessly in the manifestation of your own blessings.
And once you have achieved that state of happiness, you must never become lax about maintaining it.”
~ From “Eat, Pray, Love” by Elizabeth Gilbert
