Quote of the day

"When a person is miserable, wretched, and unhappy in himself, put him in what circumstances you please, and he is wretched still. If a person is poor, and composes his mind, and calmly submits to the providence of God, he will feel cheerful and happy in all circumstances, if he continues to keep the commandments of God. But you may fill the house of a dissatisfied person with everything the world can produce, and he will be miserable with all. All heaven could not satisfy discontented persons; they must first be satisfied with themselves, and content in the situation in which they are placed, and learn to acknowledge the hand of God in all things."

- Heber C. Kimball

K, that almost made me feel worse.
It's true stuff though.
Ok, I'm being happy now. Even though it's 4:30 AM and I'm sitting at work, I'm choosing to be happy!

Tis true. Happiness is a choice.
