We are happy when we choose it, when we intend it, and when we focus on what makes us happy.

There is beauty in everything. It's up to us to find it, to uncover it with our own perceptions and to listen for it in other's perceptions. Beauty, like Joy and Happiness, is a state of mind.

If you’re not happy: do things that make you happy, count your blessings, balance your life, set boundaries, love yourself, let go, breathe and be in the moment.

Take time to do what makes your soul happy.

Happiness is: dreaming big dreams, embracing your flaws, going after what you want, and having the confidence to be exactly who you are.

By allowing myself to be happy, I inspire others to be happy as well.

Be so happy that when others look at you they become happy too.

Be crazy. Be stupid. Be silly. Be weird. Be whatever. Because life is too short to be anything but happy.
