Want that joyful ounce in your step? You've gotta put it there. No one is responsible for creating your inner joy except for you. Happiness really is a choice and it's the result of leading a life you feel proud of living. Your actions must align with your beliefs. Your daily habits must align with your loftier goals. Your relationships must align with your individual emotional needs. Your outer public you must by in sync with the inner private you. There's no getting around this simple truth.
So bounce on, sweet friends. And don't ever fool yourself into thinking it's anyone else's job to make you happy. That job is exclusively yours.
