So, this is the beginning of happiness.

I remember one morning getting up at dawn, there was such a sense of possibility. You know, that feeling? And I remember thinking to myself. So, this is the beginning of happiness. This is where it starts. And of course there will always be more. It never occurred to me that it wasn't the beginning. It was happiness. It was the moment. Right then.

"You spend so much time trying to prove how superior you are that you've forgotton how to live. You obsess over all the wrong things, refuse to let anybody see inside you, and then you can't figure out why you're not happy."
--Susan Elizabeth Phillips, 'Match Me If You Can'

Maybe one day she'll say that she's happy enough.
