Happiness is a Choice
Hugh MacLeod and Gaping Void have a great newsletter. Occasionally, he drops some good stuff. This is a great one linking to a study about happiness and being responsible for it yourself.
Buddha once said that “Life is suffering”. He didn’t say that most of our suffering is self-inflicted. Or if he did, that part was mostly lost on us mere mortals.
Happiness is not just the result of good fortune and good brain chemicals. Happiness is also part of being responsible for your own experience. Indeed.
