“You are responsible for your own happiness. Happiness never comes from outside you. If you put your happiness in someone else’s hands, they can always take it away. Happiness can only come from inside of you and is the result of your love.“
My reflection: Choosing your state of mind is empowerment. Look at your own life just today. If you find yourself giving credit to other people or situations for your good feelings or you realize that you’re blaming someone for making you feel bad or your financial situation for making you feel bad then you’re not taking responsibility for your own well-being. Make the choice right now to feel a little better than you do right now. Move your mind gently in the direction of feeling better. The key is being present in the moment so that you can be aware of the infinite number of things you can observe that feel good including choosing better-feeling thoughts. Conscious choosing is owning your power.
