Happiness is not a destination.  There is no end point.

Happiness is a process; it is a learning curve; it is not something you can force.

For me, that process has been extremely slow, and extremely turbulent; there have more set backs and pauses than I could have ever imagined.

But I am happier and more positive now than I could have ever imagined, too.

The struggles have been so worth it.
