321/365 - More selfless to act happy (Gretchen Rubin)


“The belief that unhappiness is selfless 
and happiness is selfish
 is misguided.

 It's more selfless to act happy.

 It takes energy, generosity, 
and discipline 
to be unfailingly lighthearted,
 yet everyone takes the happy person for granted.

 No one is careful of his feelings 
or tries to keep his spirits high.

 He seems self-sufficient;
 he becomes a cushion for others. 

And because happiness seems unforced, 
that person usually gets no credit.”

  Gretchen Rubin
The Happiness Project
