Happiness Is A Way Of Travel Not A Destination

Happiness Is A Way Of Travel Not A Destination. With diligence and effort we believe we will somehow get to a point of happiness. This quote made me think differently about happiness and how it’s threaded throughout life. We experience moments when we are unhappy, which is okay. My very wise Mom says “You’ve got to hold on to the good” My crafting makes me happy, how about you? Hope this week’s roundup of craft inspiration brings you happiness. Please share. #knitting #crochet #DIY #sewingI saw this quote during my readings on the internet this week –

With diligence and effort we believe we will somehow get to a point of happiness.

This quote made me think differently about happiness and how it’s threaded throughout life.

Sure there are times when we can be unhappy but as my very wise Mom says “You’ve got to hold on to the good”

I am trying to do just that. My crafting makes me happy, how about you?

Hope this week’s roundup of craft inspiration brings you happiness 🙂
