The Key To Happiness

There is only one person 
who could ever make you happy, 
and that person is you.
David Burns

I could not agree any more with this quote.  Happiness has to come from within, not from external circumstances.  Other people can not make us happy.  Materialistic things do not make us happy.  While all of these can have some type of influence, they do not determine our happiness.  If we rely on external circumstances to make us happy, then we are at other people's wills, moods, and whims.  We are weak, leaving an awful lot to chance.  Other people can of course contribute to our happiness, but we deserve a more stable foundation on which we build our life.  We need to look within.  We need to be the source of our own happiness, so our life is built on a steadier foundation.

We must rise above life's imperfections and annoyances, it's disappointments and struggles.  Life is never perfect, but if we are at peace with ourselves and know we can look within ourselves for happiness, we can connect with it.  There is an endless supply inside of us.

Thought of the Day:  The only person who can make you happy is you.  The key to being happy to is be happy with yourself.  If you're not happy with yourself, what changes do you need to make to get there? 

Have a wonderful day!



  1. I agree totally with you. No doubt certain people may bring us happy moments into our life, we ourselves are a consistent source and motivator. Anyway, we're taking others for granted waiting for them to make us happy when we can get from within us in the first place ... it just need a little more effort.
