Happy Happiness Quotes
How many things do we need to be Happy? Fewer than we think. In fact, doesn't it sometimes seem like the more stuff we have the less happiness we feel. More stuff means more that we have to take care of, more that can suddenly go wrong on us. Too much clutter can hide what inspires us. With a positive approach we can clearly define what we need to have a life full of happiness and love.
We can't get everything we think we want to make us happy, but we can readjust our thinking to find the riches we already have. What brings the most happiness to your life?
