169. We Must Make Our Own Happiness

I realized something today.  Recently, I’ve been spending far too much time waiting for other people and other things to make me happy.  Somewhere along the way, I seem to have forgotten something very important. 

 We must make our own happiness.
I cannot sit and wait for the good things to come my way.  I must seek them.
We must make our own happiness.
I cannot rely on others to make me happy.  If I can’t make myself happy, no one can.
We must make our own happiness.
Making happiness can be scary.  I have to be willing to take risks.
We must make our own happiness.
I have to make decisions.  I have to do things because I want them.

We must make our own happiness, and it’s time for me to make me happy.

 

Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgment that something else is more important than fear.”~Ambrose Redmoon

 “Sometimes you have to make your own opportunities and that’s why I’m on TV. I wasn’t going to sit around anymore, waiting patiently for the damn phone to ring. I had to create my own place- I’ve always done that.” ~ Bette Midler
