My dear,

Happiness is really just the 15 minutes after you’ve completed one challenge – and before you’ve identified a new one.

The thing being happy is that only that which we love doing actually challenges us – everything else breaks us.

Happiness is really just that small fleeting moment where you’ve conquered hard work that you’re proud of… before you start on even harder work that you’ll be even prouder of.

Falsely yours,
Alain de Botton
