There is a place for happiness. For everyone. Nobody is too broken, too broke, too victimized, too privileged, too anything to find happiness.
But happiness is something that is earned, not granted. It takes work. It takes healing. It takes discipline. It takes courage. It takes a rebellious spirit.
It is not something anybody can give us. It is not something that can be taken from us either. It is ours to find and ours to keep.
Happiness is not childlike joy. That is our birthright. Although re-connecting our joy is absolutely a part of it.
Happiness is not privilege. Having access to more money, resources and power is not the same as happiness.
