happiness is made for you

12 February 2013

I never really told you about this poster we now have in our shop - Happiness is made for you. I always find it fascinating how people come up with ideas. So if you are interested here is a story behind this poster.
As you might know I'm a huge secret romantic and I love old love stories, nothing cheesy but classical type of romance, sad, eternal love. That kind of feelings people die for.
So when I was reading Love Letters of Great Men , which I really enjoyed by the way, I came across one letter from Napoleon to his wife Josephine. And this is the part of the letter:

" Do not put yourself out; run after pleasures; happiness is made for you. The entire world is too glad to be able to please you......."

So here you go this is my inspiration.  I think we are partly responsible for our happiness and if we believe we deserve to be happy we are more likely be that way.....
