Quote from my book...
“Here is what I believe
I have touched on some of my ideas about happiness already and we will explore this topic in more depth in the next chapter. What is important for you to know now are some of my beliefs about happiness in general and about your happiness specifically. These beliefs have been distilled in my mind over time. They are the result of hard thinking and hard learning, and they inform my approach to happiness in this book. What I believe is this:
2 Happiness is an individual, subjective experience, which means that only you will know what happiness is for you at your age and stage of life. No one can tell you where to find or how to feel your happiness, because it is yours and yours alone.
3 Happiness requires self acceptance, because it is simply not possible to be happy if you are not happy with who you are. Happiness requires a clear sense of self worth, along with the ongoing development of self acceptance and self awareness.
4 Happiness may be experienced in three ways and these are through sensations of comfort, empathetic relationships or engagement, and meaningful, rewarding goals. These will all be explored in more detail in the chapters that follow.
5 Happiness requires a conscious decision and intentional action, so you need to make the decision to feel happy in spite of, or perhaps inspired by, the events in your life. You also need to commit to acting in certain ways to bring happiness into your life.
6 Happiness takes skill and practice, which is where your rituals come in. “
