"Inspiring others to happiness brings you happiness" -My yogi tea bag

It's a totally happy Tuesday here in NYC. Despite the overcast weather and sprinkles, it's a great day out here. Best birthday How I Met Your Mother Style.

I saw the quote above this morning on my yogi tea bag and was thinking just how true it is. That is what really does make me happy. Seeing other people happy, encouraging their own happiness, sharing in their happiness--that's what I love. That is what brings me the most happiness in my own life. People always think I'm a little silly on my birthday when I make everyone wish with me...but that's how I roll. My wish is that you each make your own happiness.

"So much sadness exists in the world that we are all under obligation to contribute as much joy as lies within our powers." ~ John Sutherland Bonnell

"Happiness is an attitude. We either make ourselves miserable, or happy and strong. The amount of work is the same." ~ Francesca Reigler, artist

"Joy has nothing to do with material things, or with man's outward circumstance...A man living in the lap of luxury can be wretched, and a man in the depths of poverty can overflow with joy." ~ William Barclay
