Happiness comes from within. It is not dependent on external things or on other people. You become vulnerable and can be easily hurt when your feelings of security and happiness depend on the behaviour and actions of other people. Never give your power to anyone else.

It’s 9: 18 PM on day 221 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, feed myself a banana for breakfast, go to the Good Friday Service – the sermon was about the last words Jesus uttered on the cross and how he taught and lived forgiveness – watch TV, feed myself Batura – deep fried bread – for lunch, send a friend of mine a donation request on Facebook – still waiting for a response… fingers-crossed 🙂 – tweet about my Clean Water For All Campaign for a few hours – no luck – feed myself custard for dinner and tweet about my campaign some more – still no luck but hey I gave my all 🙂
Today I woke up happy and free even though my father refused to go to church with us because I knew that what he did or didn’t do had nothing to do with me. Are things out of your control causing you misery?
