Happy New YOU

When we expect happiness to come to us from the outside we are usually disappointed. Happiness is not guaranteed by sunny weather, a raise in pay, a new car, a beautiful home or anything else of a material nature. External things are often possessed by very unhappy people.
Happiness does not come out of a New Year; it comes out of men and women. Life does not change when we hang a new calendar on the wall or when the clock strikes midnight and a New Year begins. The only way life will change for us is when we change ourselves.
The source of happiness is not in events happening outside of us; the source of happiness is within us. We cannot control the outside world but we can control our own thoughts and emotions. All true happiness is an inner experience.
