The first step on the journey of happiness is to take responsibility for your life. You can never be mentally, emotionally or spiritually healthy until you stop letting other people control your actions, thoughts and emotions.
At the same time, happiness isn’t found by concentrating all your energy on yourself. Selfishness is a sure path to unhappiness. Happiness is created in learning how to have healthy relationships. It is discovered in accepting that there are rules that make life work, instead of basing right and wrong on your immediate feelings. It is discovered in work that uses your talents. It is ultimately discovered in a relationship with your Creator.
God has a purpose for your life. It’s the journey of a lifetime!
