Fact: When you feel good, life feels good.

Philosophy teaches that circumstances and seasons will always vary (Happy Spring, by the way!); however, when the individual consciously nurtures an inner sense of happiness, then every outside event becomes a reflection of that individual’s purpose and positivity.

So if you’re already feeling good, or even if you’re feeling great – here are ten quotes to inspire positive energy, happiness, and optimism on your journey.
