I'm often thought to be a very optimistic and happy person. However, I'm actually full of rage and teen angst that I never seemed to grow out of. I know you can't just sit and wait for good things to happen, you have to make them happen. But it'd be nice if something huge could happen that made things finally settle into place and I'd be able to say I was happy.

Happiness is something so many of us chase. It's something so many of us give up on. Happiness is one of those things you don't always realize you already have. Never stop having happiness as a goal, but don't let it be the only thing that rules your life. You might end up looking in the wrong places when the happiness you want was in front of you all along.

I mean, there have to be better things in life than cake, right? But maybe I just need to look at cake a little differently.
