QUOTE: The purpose of life is not to be happy; but to matter, to be productive, to be useful, to have it make some difference that you have lived at all. — Leo Rosten

To “matter” is a part of learning to be happy in the process of accomplishing life. To be a messenger, a teacher and a giver. Happiness is an attitude and state of mind, a decision. If one chooses to be happy in their head the heart usually follows and thru this, productivity and usefulness can be most powerful..in fact infectious. And what could “matter” more than a joyous person spreading their power of usefulness, productively?

Being Happy about who you are and the life around you does make change and inspires those around to be postive. I agree with Carolyn above a joyous person feels as though they do “matter” and selfworth brings happyness.
