Accept yourself

To be beautiful means to be yourself. You don’t need to be accepted by others. You need to accept yourself.

Happiness

Happiness is not by chance, but by choice.

Enjoy everything that is

Happiness is letting go of what you think your life is supposed to look like and enjoying it for everything that it is.

Chasing Rainbows

If you chase anything in life chase the things that get you excited about living. Chase the things that give you hope, happiness and a glimpse of a better life. Chase the things that make you want to be a better person. Chase the things that inspire you to think, create and live joyfully. Chase the things that reinforce in your soul that you can make a difference. Chase the things that make you want to transform your heart from selfish to selfless. When you chase that kind of storm you are chasing rainbows.

Happiness and Pleasure

Pleasure is a false god. Research shows that people who focus their energy on superficial pleasures end up more anxious, more emotionally unstable, and more depressed. Pleasure is the most superficial form of life satisfaction and therefore the easiest to obtain and the easiest to lose. And yet, pleasure is what’s marketed to us, 24/7. It’s what we fixate on. It’s what we use to numb and distract ourselves. But pleasure, while necessary in life (in certain doeses), isn’t, by itself, sufficient. Pleasure is not the cause of happiness; rather, it is the effect.
