“.......We are aware that happiness depends primarily on our mental attitude and not on external conditions,
and that we can live happily in the present moment simply by remembering
that we already have more than enough conditions to be happy."
-  the Seventh of The Fourteen Mindfulness Trainings

“If we want to fully enjoy life's gifts, we must practice mindfulness at every turn,
whether we're brushing our teeth, cooking our breakfast, or driving to work.
Every step and every breath can be an opportunity for joy and happiness.”
-  Thich Nhat Hanh, Happiness
