"People are about as happy as they make up their minds to be."

I've always been a true believer in the statement, but a passage from a book I was reading the other day gave me a little more insight. I've thought about it a lot...and I wanted to share it on my blog.

"No one can get joy by merely asking for it. It is one of the ripest fruits of life, and like all other fruits, must be grown. Happiness is the bud, the blossom, and the fruit of good and noble actions. It is not the gift of God. It must be earned."

I seriously could write the longest post in history about it. I could break it down sentence by sentence, word by word. But, then, who would read it? However, if it struck a cord with you, you could leave a comment and we can continue the conversation there!?!?

And, because posts without pictures are SUPER boring, here's a recent favorite! Facebook profile picture favorite!
