Happiness is an intrinsic quality of gratitude.
When you are grateful, you are happy.
Be grateful. Find good reasons. Find stupid reasons. Find trivial reasons.
Soon you may be surprised with how spontaneous and joyous your experiences of gratitude become.
Of course, you never really forget anyone, but you certainly release them. You stop allowing their history to have any meaning for you today. You let them change their haircut, let them move, let them fall in love again. And when you see this person you have let go, you realize that there is no reason to be sad. The person you knew exists somewhere, but you are separated by too much time to reach them again.Chelsea Fagan (via simply-quotes)
The stupid thing about anger is how people hurt you and then you let them keep hurting you by being angry about how they originally hurt you. It’s a vicious cycle.Susane Colasanti, So Much Closer
