Happiness isn’t something that depends on our surroundings…it’s something we make inside ourselves. ~ Corrie Ten Boom
I’m not sure I completely agree with this statement, because it can be hard to feel happy when those around you are hurting or in pain, or you’re worried about other situations in your life. That said, even when we are going through tough times, it is still possible to be happy…at least some of the time!
Sometimes, being happy is simply about putting your worries and stresses to the back of your mind for a short time so you can enjoy something. Other times when you are unable to be happy for even a short time, it may simply be about “putting on” your happy face and facing the world for a while…and that definitely is something we do ourselves!
