One of my most favorite people of all time is Eleanor Roosevelt. I enjoy reading her books and capturing her wisdom and wise words. Recently I have been reading her book~ You Learn by Living~Eleven Keys For A More Fulfilling Life. One chapter is about Happiness~Happiness is not a goal, it is a by-product.the one sure way not to be happy is deliberately to map out a way of life in which one would please oneself completley and exclusively. After a short time, there would be little to enjoy. For what keeps our interest in life and makes us look forward to tomorow is givng pleasure to other people~
In summary be useful and helpful to those around you and you will discover Happiness. Usefulness is its own reward!
