Design challenge, day 12, happiness

My dad always told me that you can’t rely on others for your happiness. Now that I’m becoming more familiar with Buddhist teachings, I find that this is something that is reiterated over and over.

Your feelings are generated from within, not without. One thing I find that helps create a happy mood is to just smile. Like a dork, on my way to work, I just try to smile to myself.

"Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace and gratitude." ~Denis Waitley

This is a quote from Denis Waitley that I saw on TinyBuddha’s FB. The picture is more than a few years old of my niece, skipping around in DC.
