"I have learned from experience that happiness is an acquired skill.  There is always something to complain about, even in the best of times.  And there is always something to celebrate, even in the worst of times.  Happiness is not an objective reality so much as a subjective decision.  Chronic complainers miss the boat...

"...I have learned that happiness is not determined by circumstances.  Happiness is not what happens when everything goes the way you think it should go; happiness is what happens when you decide to be happy...

"...Gratitude is essential to happiness.  Developing a grateful the essence of a happy existence.  Happiness is a muscle we must use, or it will wither away."
--Marianne Williamson, Everyday Grace
