QUOTE DAY V.2



“One is happy as a result of one's own efforts

once one knows the necessary ingredients of happiness:

simple tastes, a certain degree of courage, self denial to a point,

love of work, and above all, a clear conscience.”

George Sand

Yesterday I spent almost all day, wrestling with words to write on my blog. Today, I just wanted to paint. This post is simple, a quote on happiness, something that we all want. You can't force happiness, or chase it. It comes and goes like the tide and is usually quite simple, described perfectly in this quote by George Sand.

Personally, now that I've stopped trying to be happy, it's much easier to be happy. Not having to force myself to be anyone else, for anyone else. Doing what I love, and owning my time again. I don't need to buy things to be happy (like I use to). I love my work and love being able to have the full focus that I've needed all along to create my best work. I also wish I knew these things earlier. Better late than never.

That is all for this simple, happy post. Thanks for reading and bye for now.
