We stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing.
The purpose of our lives is to be happy. Happiness is the secret to all beauty. Allow yourself to enjoy each happy moment in your life. Being happy never goes out of style.
Happiness is a journey not a destination; is a direction not a place. Happiness is not by chance but choice. You don't find the happy life, you make it. Nothing will make you happy untill you choose to be happy. Happiness depends upon ourselves. No person will make you happy unless you decide to be happy. Your happiness will not come to you, it can only come from you.
Happiness is state of activity, not out there, it's in you. It comes from your own action. Action may not always bring happiness, but there is no happiness without action. Happiness is an inside job. Don't assign anyone else that much power over your life. Being happy doesn't depend on any external conditions, not something ready made. It is governed by our mental attitude. Life finds its purpose and fulfilment in the expansion of happiness. When you're happy you enjoy the music; when you're sad you understand the lyrics. Find what makes your heart sing and create your own music.
Don't let the sadness of your past and your fear of the future ruin your happiness. Live for what today has to offer, not for what yesterday has taken away. Never expect to find happiness in the same place you lost it. You cannot protect yourself from sadness without protecting yourself from happiness. Never put the key to your happiness in somebody else's pocket. The key to being happy is knowing you have the power to choose what to accept and what to let go. For every minute you are angry you lose sixty seconds of happiness. One joy scatters a hundred griefs.
Hope reduces feelings of helplessness, increases happiness, reduces stress, and improves our quality of life. We can't go back to yesterday and we can't control tomorrow. Tomorrow is not promised, today is the tomorrow you worried about yesterday. There are only two days in the year that nothing can be done, yesterday and tomorrow. Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift, that is why they call it "The Present".
Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. The best way to be happy is to make each day happy. Happiness is not something you postpone for the future, it is something you design for the present. Do not wait to be happy in the future. The best time to be happy is always now.
Happiness is not about getting all you want, it is about enjoying all you have. If we concentrate on what we don’t have, we will never, ever have enough. The happiest of people don't necessarily have the best of everything, they just make the most of everything they have.
Life is never easy for those who dream. The secret to happiness is to not expect too much ! When you love what you have, you have everything you need. If it doesn’t add to your life, it doesn’t belong in your life.
Laugh when you can, apologize when you should, and let go of what you can’t change. Life is too short to be anything but happy. If you want to be happy, be.
