Happiness doesn’t come from the presence of desires but rather comes from the absence of desires.

For most of my life I’ve been conditioned to think that things will make me happy. I’ve failed to realize that happiness lies within. It’s a choice. Every single breathing moment I decide whether or not to be happy.

Reminder to self — read this post when you’re unhappy.
