Bring Your Own Sunshine

Posted on Updated on

There are times when we think our happiness is dependent on other people. If only “other people” would show up more in our lives, or show their approval of us or just make us laugh then we will be happy. But you can’t really control “other people”, what they do and what they don’t. It really isn’t their job to make you happy. Unless you signed them to a contract and you’re paying them to make you happy. You’re responsible for your own happiness so as the quote by Anthony D’Angelo goes, “Wherever you go, no matter what the weather, always bring your own sunshine.”


About the image: This is my favorite image from JJ’s blog, “Castle of Words” taken from, “Photoblog: Sunrise at Tiwi“. In the midst of trillions of words published online, somehow JJ found my blog and not only did she follow it, but she was also inspired to start her own blog. Now, I have to admit that the student has surpassed the teacher. With all the different forms of JJ’s creative expression (especially the images taken of beautiful Kenya), I find it really amazing to watch JJ’s journey unfold.

    I got to agree. We learn to be happy as we go long in our lives. Usually, young boys and girls depend on their friends and beloved ones to be happy but it’s all taught with time, I think. Some unfortunate persons don’t accept the rules easily and decide to learn from their own experiences, that’s why they end up in so much hurt.

    Beautiful post and picture, BRING YOUR SUNSHINE and let it shine. Thumbs up!
