When life’s knocked us around. And our childhood myths reveal themselves to be just that. The truth feels like the biggest sucker-punch of them all: it’s not a spouse or land or a job or money that brings us happiness. Those achievements, those relationships, can enhance our happiness, yes, but happiness has to start from within. Relying on any other equation can be lethal.
Its such a simple truth but one that most of us fail to absorb (including myself). A skinny body, a fancy car, a big house ... or anything we grab onto ... will not bring contentment if we don't first like ourselves.
So grab that mirror, take a long hard look and ask yourself: "What is my happiness rooted in?"
