Elizabeth Gilbert, author of "Eat, Pray, Love", quote: People tend to think that happiness is a stroke of luck, something that will descend like fine weather if you're fortunate. But happiness is the result of personal effort. You fight for it, strive for it, insist upon it, and sometimes even travel around the world looking for it. You have to participate relentlessly.
"In order to move forward with life, one needs to let completely go of the past. That can be quite scary. However, perhaps it's the transition period between the letting go stage and the starting over stage that is of the greatest fears because of the unknown. Conquering that fear will help with the moving forward. Don't be afraid because the best is yet to come." - As quoted by my friend Alisa
