She had been searching for joy everywhere until she quite suddenly realized it was an inside job. – Queenisms™
It’s surprising how often we still find ourselves thinking that some “thing” will make us happy. Things can give us pleasure, but they cannot make us happy. Only we can make ourselves happy. We can do that by loving ourselves, celebrating our accomplishments, nurturing our gifts and talents. We can do it by offering ourselves forgiveness when we stumble. We can do it by focusing more on who we are than what is outside of our control. Here’s a secret. You already have everything you need, right now, to create a joyful life for yourself. Look inside.
