My own happiness quote collection
Decided to put together a hub of my favorite feel good happiness quotes so that it is easy to refer to and help lift the spirits of anyone who is in need of one.
I love quotes that empower oneself because I strongly believe that the person who can really make us happy is ourselves. Happiness should always be sought from within and not from an external source. This way we will always have control of our own happiness and be able to be cheerful and positive about life whether or not external factors change.
The happiest of people don't necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the most of everything that comes along their way." - Karen S. Magee
"Gratitude is one of the sweet shortcuts to finding peace of mind and happiness inside. No matter what is going on outside of us, there's always something we could be grateful for." - Barry Neil Kaufman
"No one is in control of your happiness but you; therefore, you have the power to change anything about yourself or your life that you want to change." - Barbara de Angelis
"It isn't what you have, or who you are, or where you are, or what you are doing that makes you happy or unhappy. It is what you think about." - Dale Carnegie
"Happiness is acceptance." - Unknown
"The secret of happiness is not in doing what one likes, but in liking what one does." - James M. Barrie
"How would you know what happy is if you've never been otherwise." - Malcolm S. Forbes
"One of the keys to happiness is a bad memory." - Ritz Mae Brown
I have a happiness checklist that I try to remind myself whenever possible:
- See the positive of any negative situation.
- Understand that both the bad stuff and good stuff will pass really soon - so don't get too hung up on the bad ones and do treasure the good ones for they all will pass really soon too.
- Be grateful for what you have, always.
And the most important of it all - Love yourself and allow yourself to be happy.
