Happiness comes from within.
Years ago I found myself with an income property, lots of money in the bank and nary a mentor or guide to help steer me in any direction. I did as well as I could do for myself under the circumstances. I immersed myself in hobbies and travel. I hoarded books, clothes and cookware that I am finally using now. I lived for the moment. While I wish I could have planned ahead for this moment, there was really no guarantee I would be here anyway. I am not sure what I could have done differently. I do wish some folks would have made themselves available when I found myself without living siblings, parents and grandparents at twenty-two. Maybe I wouldn't have sought happiness outside myself had I known I had people.
