The Happiest People

The happiest people....

are rarely the richest, the most beautiful, or even the most talented. 

Happy people do not depend on excitement and "fun" supplied by externals. 

They enjoy the simple things in life. 

They waste no time thinking other pastures are greener; they do not yearn for yesterday or tomorrow.

They savor the moment, glad to be alive, enjoying their work, their families, the good things around them.

They are adaptable; they can bend with the wind, adjust to the changes in their times, employ the contests of life, and feel themselves in harmony with the world. 

Their eyes are turned outward, they are aware, compassionate..  They have the capacity to love.

~Jane Canfield
