Quote 49 of 365 for 2015: "Happiness is a choice, not a result. Nothing will make you happy until you choose to be happy. No person will make you happy unless you decide to be happy. Your happiness will not come to you. It can only come from you."
From a young age, my mother has instilled in me that happiness is a choice and out of all her life lessons, this one thankfully stuck. In college, obstacles are inevitable, but I am a firm believer that choosing happiness is always the best option. I want to instill in my students, like my mother did in me, that even though there are going to be hard times, good times are always on the way and happiness is always a choice in any situation.
