Kindness is an inner desire that makes us want to do good things even if we do not get anything in return. It is the joy of our life to do them. When we do good things from this inner desire, there is kindness in everything we think, say, want and do!
Emanuel Swedenborg (via bmwwillo)

The thing about happiness is…
it isn’t determined by others,
it isn’t found in others,
you can’t buy it
and you can’t own it.
You can only feel it
when you free yourself
from your own expectations,
when you open your heart
and accept
YOU.
The thing about happiness is…
it’s already in you
waiting to be acknowledged.
Mysha Brolins (via myshabrolins)
