Happiness is an inside job

“I am responsible for my own happiness. The world doesn’t owe it to me. My husband doesn’t owe it to me, and my parents don’t either. I have to stop feeling sorry for myself and start doing what makes me happy to be ALIVE.”

Appreciating this quote today and feeling deep gratitude for the simple wisdom within the AA and Alanon 12 steps to recovery. Pressing into what it looks like to truly take responsibility for my own well-being and happiness.

One source of unexpected happiness for me during the StayatHome Covid 19 Lockdown has been learning about Turkish history and culture from my friend Yusuf who was born and raised in Turkey. Real Turkish coffee (brewing on cooker in picture above) is good. The colorful dish below is homemade Ispanak Begendi.

Thanks for sharing your Turkish heritage and culture !

I’d love to know what sources of happiness are popping up for you during the Lockdown!
