“Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.” ~Mahatma Gandhi
Many people feel guilty that they are not as happy as they “should be” and feel a deep longing for something “more.” The most common attempt to remedy this is to look externally for something to fill this void. The truth is that this is an inside job. Notice that feeling of frustration and discontent. This dissonance is often the motivator to get us thinking about taking some action.
“Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions.” ~Dalai Lama XIV

Everyone is doing the best that they can, including you.
