What kind of life did they live?
*
Their creations could seem worthless to them, when faced with criticism or indifference.
*
The same satisfaction and happiness are held inside the making of that painting, prose, or scientific endeavor.
*
We need no ones approval to live happily.
*
Criticism has to be accepted to deter effort and happiness.
*
We need not be famous or rich to cultivate happiness, or a strong peace of mind.
*
We need not accomplish, defeat, overcome, or control anyone or anything to find happiness.
*
Happiness is an inside job!
*
Get to know your insides, intimately.
*
*
We need only our own approval to be happy!
