Most people think they will be happy when they get the job they interviewed for. Some people think they will finally be happy if they get married.

Then there are those that think having a baby is the thing that will make them happy.

Do you see a pattern here? Their thinking is something outside of themselves is what they need to make them happy.

What they do not know is they have all the power to make them happy. You see, happiness comes from within. “People are about as happy as they want to be.” I don’t remember who said that but it is true.

So the question becomes how important is being happy to you? What’s your answer?
