This topic lodged itself firmly in my mind when I was talking to a friend who refused to do something about her life, even though she and I both knew that after taking that extremely scary plunge, she would be very, very happy.
Happiness is the only thing that does matter in the end. All people want, everywhere in this world is happiness. Granted that some people may be happy with lots of money, others travelling the world and still others doing what they love. Every person in the world has their own concept of happiness and different ways of getting there.
For me, I think happiness is that one thing that does matter. I just want to happy and I am no saint, but I want everyone in this world to be happy too.
