"Don't let your happiness depend on something you may lose."
- C. S. Lewis
Things You Can Lose
- big house
- people you love
- all your stuff
What if you base your happiness on things? Things can be lost, and eventually we will all lose something, or everything.
It is important to be happy just as you are, right now, for no reason. No one can take that away from you, no matter what happens, or what you have or don't have.
What if everything was taken from you. Would you still be happy?
"Be happy for no reason, like a child. If you are happy for a reason, you’re in trouble, because that reason can be taken."
- Deepak Chopra
