"Everyone deserves to be happy", my friend told me the other day. While I agreed with her, I thought more about what she said.
We do deserve to be happy, but happiness is a DIY project. I think sometimes we chase happiness through stuff and things outside of ourselves. But I've realized that happiness grows from the inside out. You can't buy it, spend it, but we can create it everyday. Happiness in our lives is a moment by moment choice, no matter what we are faced with in our daily lives. Yes, sometimes that is hard to do. But the strength to make that choice comes from who you are inside. You can gracefully choose happiness daily.
