without chasing after it?
What if happiness is something we CHOOSE...
regardless of our circumstances?

acquaintances, and others who share your life.

When you follow your bliss, you put yourself on a kind of track
that has been there all the while waiting for you,
and the life you ought to be living is the one you are living.

who are in the field of your bliss,
and they open the doors to you.

If you follow your bliss,
doors will open for you that wouldn't have opened for anyone else.
