Your Own Happiness

By Jenna Ryan

You and me--we--are responsible for our own happiness. It's easy to get things confused. Our culture tells us that people, places and things are the source of our joy, our bliss and our happiness. The truth is hard to find, yet so simple. Each of us are responsible for our own happiness. Just like you can't love or be loved if you don't love yourself, no one can make you happy if you don't create your own happiness.

We all have choices. Sometimes it may feel like we have no choice but to be sad, and in some instances it's okay to be sad. Pain is a part of life. Ultimately, however, it is up to you to build your own happiness. You can't find it safely and securely outside of yourself. You yourself must plant and cultivate happiness in your own life and heart.

How do you do it? This is your responsibility, my responsibility, each of us is on this earth to understand the meaning of true happiness, peace, love, bliss and fulfillment. We are born dependent, but when we leave this earth, if we are to be mature and complete butterflies, we should have learned to recreate within our own hearts feelings of fulness and completeness to the extent that we are free.

Happiness is an inside job. :)
