On A Good Path

Those who are on a good path don't feel the need to put others down.

Where there is peace and kindness, there is no desire to compare or condemn.

Happiness

I don’t have to chase extraordinary moments to find happiness – it’s right in front of me if I’m paying attention and practicing gratitude.

- Dr. Brené Brown
