Happiness will not be found where you are currently looking. Because what you think will make you happy, will not.
Happiness will not come from losing a few pounds, gaining a few dollars, making it big, making it official, perfect bodies, perfect places or new possessions. So stop searching for something that can’t be found. And start learning what you can do to become a happier person!
Let’s be happy. Keep reading.
