A question to ponder

A question popped into my head today that I could not ingore, and I would love to hear your thoughts on this as well.

Are we happy because of our experiences, or do we create happiness regardless of them?

We have all had different life experiences and made decisions that led us to one place or another. Do we find happiness because of those decisions, or do we create happiness regardless?


I don't have an answer, and I am not sure that I ever will. On a different note, I encourage you to check out my friend Shannon's new blog, The Brown Bag Gourmet ( Her passion for cooking is evident through her writing and a bonus for the readers are the delicious and simple recipes!

Time to go celebrate, because there is no better day than today!
