Awareness pays wonderful dividends as does choosing happiness. If you would like to read an inspiring book written by someone who made this choice successfully I would recommend “Educating Alice ” by Alice Greenup. HarperCollins Publishers. HarperCollins.com.au
People never remember happiness with the care that they lavish on

Edward St Aubyn, English Author.

that becomes the inclination of their awareness.
The Buddha, Dvedhavitakka Sutta, MN 19, translated by Thanissaro Bhikkhu
