Don't Delegate Happiness

Who do you trust?

A friend of mine used to say, "A true friend is one that you could leave in charge of your wife and your money for a year, and when you come back, everything is in good shape."

Few and far between, I'd say.

Is there anybody in the whole world to whom you could say, "Here's all my money. Take care of it"? Or anyone you would trust with your kids' health and welfare? To whom could you hand over the keys to your car, or your house?

Such individuals are rare.

So why are we so trusting with our happiness?

Why do we guard our external things--money, car, house--so carefully, and yet let others be in charge of our most precious possession, our own happiness?

Let's not delegate that. Take charge of your happiness, and don't let it slip into the hands of others.

You'll be happier.
