Thailand Won’t Make You Happy

Thailand won’t make you happy.

I mean it’s a cool place.

It’s awesome actually.

You can fly half way around the world and sit in a little hotel room by the beach — but you will still be you.

It’s taken me years to realize this.

Happiness and contentment don’t come from external things like parties and beaches. They come from the inside.

They come from friends, and family. And working on stuff you love.
