Don't look for happiness, create it.

Growing up, I was taught—or inferred—that happiness was a transitory, not-really-real emotion. As in, we could all do much better to be content with what we have. Who is to say what lot you were given in life? If you want something, do the work, start the conversation, save up time and money to make it happen. Then be pleasantly surprised when good things come your way.
