the art of happiness

i love the simple but powerful message behind this print

it got me thinking a little about happiness. of all the lessons my father taught me growing up, that we are masters of our own happiness is one for which i am forever grateful.

i think its the most truthful awareness one can have, but also one of the most difficult. in one of my favorite books of all time, the art of happiness, the dalai lama writes:

"i believe that the very purpose of our life is to seek happiness. that is clear. whether one believes in this religion or that religion, we are all seeking something better in life. so, i think, the very motion of our life is towards happiness."

isn't that beautiful? i like to think of the motion of my life being towards happiness. lets remember that during these cold february days, shall we? heres to your happiness, friends.
