Just came across this one by the Dalai Lama. Not new, probably.
& not something I didn't already know.
But … still.
I love it.
"Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions."
Tons more great Dalai Lama quotes here.
He packs a lot of wisdom, does the Dalai Lama….
p.s. btw, tons more great quotes about happiness here!
p.p.s. I may be a "doomer" - but that doesn't mean there isn't a ton of joy in my life! (or, radical proposition = you can tell the truth (even when it's rather nasty) - & still be a joyful person!)
