Happiness

Here are some quotes I have read recently that I wanted to share.

Rejoice in the LORD always: and again I say, Rejoice. Philipians 4:4

Happiness is inward and not outward; and so it does not depend on what we have, but on what we are.

Always laugh when you can. It’s cheap medicine. (Lord Byron)

We don’t laugh because we’re happy- we’re happy because we laugh.(William James)

Here is a blog post from the Intentional Mom that I did with Alyson today. Love her stuff it is always so good and practical and challenging.
