Happiness or Misery

As what Martha Washington has said: I’ve learned from experience that the greater part of our happiness or misery depends on our dispositions and not on our circumstances. 

Every day is a battle between you and your inner self. Sometimes you get distracted by the way you view things in life. It exhausts you from the fact that you can’t make it all by yourself. That there are things you are good at and there are things you’re really worst at. You are not supposed to be a perfect being. You just have to be you. You just have to keep breathing and do the best that you can. People would understand if you make mistakes. Your partner would understand that you’re tired and you would come to understand that it’s okay to be you-the imperfect you. Happiness and misery are connected to one root cause. And that is your disposition in life, disposition on your insecurities and loneliness. We live not to please our neighbors, but to make our loved ones happy.

  1. Hi Jan, what an coincident! You quote is the same quote I used for my 3 days, 3 quotes challenge on my blog. I like the way you see life. My husband work out together. Of course he lifts weight at least a couple hundred pounds and I lift 30 pounds, so on and so forth. Then he runs every week days, and ride mountain bikes. We eat vegetables and salmon mostly. Would like to read more of your posts. Please come visit mine:
