“Happiness is your nature. It is not wrong to desire it. What is wrong is seeking it outside when it is inside.” ~Ramana Maharshi
We so often default to thinking that our happiness is dictated by our surroundings, so we wait to be happy until we get this, achieve that, or experience some other thing, but happiness comes from within. Yes, some circumstances may make it easier, but always looking outside ourselves will keep us from ever truly finding it.
