"Choose happiness today by taking life moment by moment, complaining very little, and being thankful for the little things that mean a lot."
“I feel like people get lost when they think of happiness as a destination. We’re always thinking that someday we’ll be happy; we’ll get that car or job or person in our lives that’ll fix everything. But happiness is a mood, it’s a condition, not a destination. It’s like being tired or hungry, it’s not permanent. It comes and goes, and that’s okay. If people thought of it that way, they’d find happiness more.”
(Julian Baker, One Tree Hill)
"The art of being happy lies within the power of finding happiness in ordinary things. Life doesn’t force us to be the best, it only asks that we should try."
"Happiness is a choice we make. You can wake up and say, “Oh, I can’t believe it’s so cold”, or you can say, “Oh, wow, this is a great opportunity for me to try out my new sweater”. No one can be consistently positive, but why not make the choice that makes you feel better rather than the one that drags you down?"
"It’s hard when you miss people. But, you know, if you miss them it means you were lucky. It means you had someone special in your life, someone worth missing."
