There are 2 kinds of individuals in the world: individuals who decide to get happy, and the ones who choose to be unhappy. Surprisingly, happiness does not arrive from popularity, lots of money, other people, or material assets. Instead, it arises from within.
The wealthiest individual on the planet may very well be unhappy while somebody dwelling in the slums of an under developed country could be joyful and content. Happy individuals are joyful due to the fact they make themselves happy. They keep a positive perspective on life and stay at peace with themselves.
Just how do they achieve that?
"WE ARE NOT OUR BODIES, OUR POSSESSIONS,
OR OUR CAREERS. WHO WE ARE IS
AND THAT IS

Today is my birthday and while I do appreciate all the birthday cupcakes, birthday ecards, and birthday quotes on Facebook, I can’t help but to share this post on my blog.
Let me start by saying that I do not believe in birthdays. Since I was a young kid I found that something was not right about the concept of a birthday, I remember always thinking that I already had a birthday and that, that day did not exist anymore.
