10% of life is what happens to you while 90% is your reaction and how you handle yourself. External forces can not be given credit for your happiness, because that simpy isn't reality. You make yourself happy or miserable. In being happy you attract those who you are happy with. Nobody is going to bring happiness to you or take it away. The only person responsible for your life experience is you. Choose your thoughts and behaviors wisely. Rejoice and live the way you want; and always remember to treat others the way you want to be treated, because the energy you put out is what you'll be getting right back.
