Yet others may believe that being healthy will make them happy, but happiness is a decision. Happiness is a state of mind or a mentality that a person carries. I believe that we are in control of our own happiness because we are the only ones in control of our thoughts and if we choose to carry around a positive mentality and look at the bright side of our situations, we will live in happiness.

My favorite one is “Sometimes you make choices in life and sometimes choices make you.” Which in my opinion is true, because you are who you are and if you make a choice of doing something good and right, that 's just showing the goodness of your character, of you. Another quote that lines up with the theme of this book is “People believe what they want to believe.” Like Mia did, I want spoil the book if you decide to read it.

The postmodern consumers use con-sumption to make them feeling better and helps them to get there’s recognition.
