“It is one of the great ironies of our age that we are blessed with so much and yet we can be so unhappy.

“Happiness doesn’t come from external circumstances.

“It comes from the inside –regardless of what is happening around us.”

-Dieter F. Uchtdorf, “All is Well,” July 2015

      I’ve heard it’s like sad, but the opposite.

        I prefer peaceful, contented or similar…. happy connotes (to me) not a care in the world. A person can be sad, yet at peace.

        I think happy connotes without a care… jolly…. I prefer peaceful or contented… just a quirk

    Mother discussed this much. She helped others to settle their internal issues. As a daughter it grew in our home as well with others
    She could laugh yet I knew the secrets
    Yes, beauty shows.

    Money does not buy happiness; it does, however, buy the things that bring us happiness…

    It’s true, Chelsea. That “one more…” has no end to it. Yes, contentment is the key.

    Yes, money helps …for me it is the small things, a word, a kindness, a smile they all help to bring me peace and a calmness…Love those words they portray so much 🙂
