TO – 11/21 – at the main plaza…

As the holiday season approaches, I find myself thinking more and more about the topic of… happiness and what it means.

Happiness is produced not so much by great pieces of good fortune that seldom happen, as by little advantages that occur ever day ~ ~ Benjamin Franklin

Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful. ~~ Albert Schweitzer

What’s the use of worrying?
It never was worth while,
So pack up your troubles in your old kit-bag,
And smile, smile, smile. ~~ George Asaf

It is one of the beautiful compensations of life that no man can sincerely try to help another without helping himself. ~~ Emerson, Ralph Waldo

If only we could remember some of these quotes when we need them most, our lives would be a lot more satisfying! Don’t you think??

  14. you look too cute. happiness is what we make of it. if i am happy then i have happiness. no amount of money or material things can make a person truly happy.

  15. One finds true happiness as we accept our limitations and stop trying to change what we cannot.

    I cannot remember who wrote this quote but it goes something like this:

    " you may only be a plant, and you know that you'll never grow to be a beautiful tree. Just make sure you are the best plant you can be."

  16. As frases são lindas e realistas!
    Realmente, se pudéssemos nos lembrar delas quando precisamos seria ótimo, mas acredito que se as lermos sempre e passarmos a praticar as coisas boas que lemos, quando precisarmos, elas nos virão à mente!
    Adorei a bolsa combinando com o lenço!
    Namastê
    Beijo.
