Being on the east coast brings us in contact with a lot of people of different nationalities. Just this morning, my husband told me about a meeting where he looked around and realized he was the only one born in the United States. His peers are from India, China, Mauritius, Cuba, Belgium, England, Russia, Israel, and more. Many of the people came to America for different reasons, but they all mostly wanted a different, better life.
The American Dream.
Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness....
Recently, I received a fortune cookie that made me think. It said, "Doing what you like is freedom. Liking what you do is happiness."
