Quotes About Being Happy

quotes about being happy

“Happiness is a state of mind.  It is not won from success, powered by money, filled full with possessions or cloaked in friends.   Happiness, in fact, grows from a point of decision that to feel any other way is just dull.” Stephanie Schneider

Too often in life, something happens and we blame other people for us not being happy or satisfied or fulfilled. So the point is, we all have choices, and we make the choice to accept people or situations or to not accept situations. - Tom Brady

We've just learned how to balance ourselves a little better so that we're happier way more of the time than not, and, you know, being happy is a radical and desirable act if you ask me.
Anthony Kiedis

I worry that if I enjoy something - like the songs on 'Some Nights' are about wondering about who you are. I'm never quite sure and I'd hate to feel sort of content and get a good sense of who I am because if I know one thing, that's not me. I don't mind not necessarily being happy about it. And that's fine.
Nate Ruess

“Happiness is by no means circumstantial.  It is, however, a choice, which to me is one of the greatest powers we possess.  No matter what hell is be-falling us, we can focus on what’s good…and evil ever so hates it when it’s given all it’s got and we simply smile politely in return.”  Stephanie Schneider

Success is just being happy. And I try so many different things. I do a lot of different things. Because I think God has helped me to love myself. I know who God is, and I love God.
Herschel Walker

The glory is being happy. The glory is not winning here or winning there. The glory is enjoying practicing, enjoy every day, enjoying to work hard, trying to be a better player than before.
Rafael Nadal

Life is not always not always what one wants it to be., but to make the best of it as it is the only way of being happy.
Jennie Churchill

“Happiness isn’t just a feeling, it’s something you have to reach for when it isn’t even anywhere in site.  When you keep reaching, you’ll realize you’ve reached so high you’re not even on the ground anymore, bound by its bitter gravity, but you are soaring instead in the sky, free.”  Stephanie Schneider

Yes, I suffer terribly from depression. I have to work at being happy, it's not my natural instinct. My natural instinct is, if something wonderful happens, to throw water in my own face.
Fannie Flagg

I want to be happy. I realized that being happy isn't necessarily about getting there, it's how you get there. It almost sounds like a cliche, but every entrepreneur I've talked to - every good entrepreneur - really enjoys the 'how you get here.'
Ben Huh

I spent my 30s figuring out how to be a grown up, I guess. I loved my 30s! My 30s were really about being happy with what I was doing.
Ana Ortiz

“Happiness and sadness are like the light and the dark.  You can’t sit in a dark room and tell the darkness to go away.  You have to get up and choose first to turn the light switch on…and if the light switch is broke, sledge hammer your way through the nearest wall, never quitting until the sunlight comes flooding in.”  Stephanie Schneider

I worried that people wouldn't like me. Now I try not to worry and focus on being happy.
Lea Michele

“The real truth is, no one wants to learn to be happy, its too much trouble, the conquest of it feels too overwhelming.  This is why so many of us are content being numb, and being angry and killing ourselves.  The truth is, it’s up to all of us.  The weight of the world is a heavy thing, for all of us to carry.  Some just choose to catch balloons filled with small joys, hopes and passions making the weight float off their back just a little more each day.  That is the easiest answer I have.”  Stephanie Schneider

“I find no importance in showing others that I am happy; it's not important to me that they know or think that I am happy but what is important to me is that I am happy. I am interested in being happy, not in making others think or know that I am.” ― C. JoyBell C.

“Figure out what makes you laugh, and do more of it. Figure out what makes you cry, and do less of it.” 
 Mandy Hale

“I looked long and hard for the paper roses! I found the reddest red ribbon, and a little golden card! We were all there together, many of us, in the same place; but I was the only one who found the paper roses, the only one who chose the reddest red ribbon, and the only one who topped off with a golden card. And so I learned that if people are unhappy, it is only because they don't know how to look for the paper roses, they don't see the reddest red ribbon, and they don't like the little golden cards. We are all in the same wrap-shoppe in this life. But we are different. Because some of us are looking for the paper roses, choosing the reddest red ribbon, and picking up the little golden cards.” ― C. JoyBell C.

“You will have fewer regrets in life if you start focusing and taking responsibility for where you are and where you want to be.” ― Deborah Day

“In my mind, I yelled at him and screamed at him for days.  You broke my heart!  You broke my heart!  I cried and cried, wondering how to go on, how to ever be happy again, when my beautiful heart had been so tossed away, so forgotten by him.  Weeks went by and he never came back.  I looked in the mirror and saw my red eyes, my gaunt face from no food and long sleepless nights.  I put my hand on my heart and felt it beating; I swear I heard its desperate cries...”don’t do the same” it whispered “don’t throw me aside” it sang as it was slowly starting to die.  In desperation and compassion on my own breath, I reached into myself and pumped my heart with passion with my own hand, realizing then it was ultimately mine to care for and not another.  I whispered to it I would never again toss it sorrowfully aside to let it die.  I stood up, breathed in, I got dressed and I slaughtered the sorrow destroying my heart.  It took many swings, and many hours and many days and many months.  The combat was grueling but my heart grew stronger with each swing I made.  Finally I walked outside, I felt the sun and saw the new day.  I saw his face in my mind but I smiled. I was happy, I was alive, not because life felt that way but because I had chosen it to be.”  Stephanie Schneider
