Happiness quotes encourage me and make me believe that I deserve to be happy when no one stands by me. Every time I read them, they make me see the very positive and joyful world. Happiness quotes allow me to understand that “grief” is normal! It is completely fine if today is a sad day. I can grieve for a moment, analyze it, filter it and move on.

The path to happiness begins by understanding the root cause of your sadness and suffering. Everyone seeks happiness. Almost every action, activity, and goal is motivated by the desire to find happiness. So, why is it that this desire to find happiness is rarely satisfied?

The answer to this is very straightforward. Ask yourself, are you spending time doing a task to impress others – to seek their validation and approval? If that is the case, you will not be able to experience true happiness and real joy. Stop letting the validation of others be your motivation, why are you allowing someone else to be in control of your happiness and positivity? This all comes down to the reason why I chose to write this article on Happiness Quotes. I want you to read these quotes with me and genuinely experience a bit of positivity and happiness that you deserve.

Here are 41 inspiring happiness quotes to help cheer yourself up! I hope this article spreads some positivity and helps put a smile on your face 🙂
