Don´t let your work define you. But let you define what works for you to defy and refine you even more.
A Speechmaker's Prayer: Let each word of mine be tender and sweet, Just in case someone might make me eat it.
A negative mind sees happiness as a mystery. So it swims from coast to coast searching for it with a doubtful mindset. Sooner or later, it gives up on it, and comes to conclusion that happiness is an impossible task to achieve. But a positive mind sees happiness as a matter of deciding to focus on the positive side of its life's experiences instead of allowing its negative experiences to hold it in everlasting bondage.
There are so many ways to seek and find pleasure, but only one way to search and gain happiness; which is through your mind.
The moment that you realize that only you can activate happiness in your life, and that things or people cannot do it for you, that is when you would stop to look for it on the outside and start searching on the inside.
