on chasing happiness



Affection is responsible for nine-tenths of whatever solid and durable happiness there is in our lives. C.S. Lewis

Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.
Lao Tzu


A very small degree of hope is sufficient to cause the birth of love.
Stendhal


Happiness often sneaks in through a door you didn't know you left open.
John Barrymore


May we find that open door, 
that small degree of hope, 
that strength, 
that courage, 
and that affection. 
~love, me

  1. Thank you, Shaunda. With all the hustle and bustle of working an 11-hr day job, pushing a fledgling writing career and balancing the needs of the family, it is so great to get a taste of perspective every once in a while.
    Love, happiness, family. These are the things that are really important, aren't they?
