Enjoy 2020!

Author: Paulo Coelho

Many people are fearful of happiness. For such persons, to be content in life means they must change a number of their habits -and lose their sense of identity.

Often we become indignant at the good things that befall us.

We do not accept them, because to do so causes us to feel that we are in God’s debt.

We think: ‘Better not to drink from the chalice of happiness, because, when it is empty, we will suffer greatly. ‘

Out of a fear of shrinking, we fail to grow.

Out of a fear of weeping, we fail to laugh


Therefore, enjoy 2020 and HAPPY NEW YEAR!
