    Love all of these…

    I always loved, “happiness is an inside project.”

    I am 25 now and have been going through an intense search for happiness through my career since I got my job 2 years ago… I know now that other things outside of work and who I am as a person as well make up your happiness. And I also know that when I obsess over happiness too much, I am not happy… lessons learned. Always learning. But these were great quotes!

      Hi, Shannon.
      Thank you for sharing your experience.
      Sometimes, we search for happiness in the wrong places and that’s one of the reasons we’ll never find it.
      The way we react to external stimuli can actually contribute to our level of happiness.

      I’m glad you love these quotes.
      Have a fabulous day.

    I love all of those quotes. Happiness is so easily achieved that it can become second nature to anyone. It i just an attitude, a mindset and of course a lot of self love.

    Thanks for these awesome quotes.
