Have you ever known someone who thought that if they had a new car, new house, new spouse, new laptop, blah, blah, blah, that they would at last be happy? If only it were that easy! Happiness is inside us. We make it happen. Here’s a simple quote about happiness from one of my favorite fantasy series.
There is never any reason for happiness. Yet it exists. -Kate Elliot, Spirit Gate: Book One of Crossroads
