"The greatest gift you can give to those you love is to be happy yourself - that way they'll never have to worry about you again."
This is a cazaphrase (okay paraphrase) of something I saw in a book a few months back. I read a lot and can't remember exactly which book it was, but it had a powerful affect on my life. These words often swim around in my mind and play a part in decisions I make. Don't you think it's a wonderful gift to give to those you love? Never having to worry about being responsible for your happiness.
I like being responsible for my own happiness - it makes me feel powerful and in control of my life.
I love that it can set other free from worrying about me. I'm grateful for that!
