“You may think that you need a particular person to be happy, or a job to be successful, or some other emotional or physical gratification to be content. That is when you may wish to notice that you are here, right now, without it. Why, then, do you think you need it? Close examination will reveal that you do NOT need it, not to survive, not even to be happy.
HAPPINESS IS A DECISION, NOT AN EXPERIENCE.
You can decide to be happy without what you thought you needed to be happy, and you will be. This is one of the most important things you could ever come to understand. Your experience is the RESULT of your decision, not the CAUSE of it.”
Neale Donald Walsch, in “Communion with God”
