Great Movie to Inspire Happiness

I don't normally make postings about movies, but this one is a real gem. The characters and storyline were funny and creative, while holding such insight. I would highly recommend watching "Hector and the Search for Happiness." I watched it twice, in fact, and actually took notes the second time because I didn't want to forget some of the quotes from the movie. Here are my offerings to you from the movie:

*Making comparisons can spoil your happiness

*Many people only see happiness in their future or their past

*Sometimes happiness is not knowing the whole story

*More important than what we are searching for is what we are avoiding

*Avoiding unhappiness is not the road to happiness

*There's really only one question: Does this person bring you predominantly up or down?

*Happiness is answering your calling

*Happiness is being loved for who you are

*Fear is an impediment to happiness

*Happiness is feeling completely alive

*Happiness is knowing how to celebrate

*People who are afraid of death are afraid of life

*Listening is loving

*It's not so much about the pursuit of happiness, but the happiness of pursuit. Happiness is a byproduct when we're otherwise engaged in something enjoyable or inspiring.
