happiness: the state of mind or feeling characterized by contentment, love, satisfaction, pleasure or joy
So I’ve been thinking… why can’t I determine my own happiness?
Why do I look to my plans, my friends, my situation to create joy?
Why can’t I be happy in this moment, without having to justify it with having things to do or people to hang out with?
my heart is happy, although my situation is less than perfect...
and that's all that matters.
God is preparing me for something greater than I can imagine.
