The grand essentials to happiness in this life are having something to do, something to love and something to hope for.
—Joseph Addison—

focusing attention outside of ourselves on hobbies, on goals, on friends, steadily bathes us with inspiration and enthusiasm for

moving forward.
And this movement, in turn, rekindles our commitment to all our attention-drawing activities.
It is true that happiness lies within us, but our discovery of this is only is only made possible by our willing involvement in the lives
and experiences surrounding us. Those who lead narrow, self-seeking, self-serving lives fail to discover happiness. It lies beyond their
reach because they’ve failed to reach beyond themselves.
Each day is as full and as ripe with adventure and meaning as we choose to make it. Where we look, What we see, do, and plan for,
are in our control.
I am personally responsible for the happiness I discover. I’ll help my search today by getting truly interested in what others are doing.
