Welcome to my blog! I wish you a new year of happiness and peace. As we progress on our journey of life, there are challenges that may seem insurmountable. Usually that block is anchored in what we believe about the situation.

We get unhappy because we believe we need to be.

Either because we are not getting what we want, or things did not work out the way we had planned. Our beliefs are the basis of how we feel. How we feel affects our behavior and the results in our life. What if you could be happy even before everything was the way you wanted it to be? Consider that the purpose of life is the expansion of happiness. How would that serve you? I’d love to hear how you define happiness.

Sharing with you a few quotes:

But what is happiness except the simple harmony between a man and the life he leads.
by Albert Camus

The greatest part of our happiness depends on our dispositions, not our circumstances.
by Martha Washington

Happiness is a thing to be practiced, like the violin.
by John Lubbock

Happiness… is not a destination: it is a manner of traveling. Happiness is not an end in itself. It is a by-product of working, playing, loving and living.
by Haim Ginott

Happiness is a conscious choice, not an automatic response.– Mildred Barthel.

How do you define happiness?
