Happiness is an internal thing. all of the money in the world can't fulfill the thirst a human soul has for joy, for peace.

Turmoil that feeds off of insecurities and jealousy guards the bridge to serenity, a gruesome troll with horns of hatred and claws of envy.

Some say the creature can be bribed with designer clothes and the swankiest cars, but it's merely distraction.

To reach the other side, where the grass is greener and the sun brighter, you have to disregard the ugliness of the beast, not simply mask it with luxuries.

You are the gatekeeper of your own well-being.

Refuse to let the unhappiness you create for yourself scare you off the bridge.

Refuse to let your own unhappiness keep you from happiness.

The world is too vast, too magnificent.

So quench your thirst.

Drink up.

A new life awaits.
