The same is true of the good stuff in life. Happiness takes effort. The sweetest parts of life are often simple in their nature, but require some work on your part. In both cases any bitterness has to be removed or separated so as not to taint the sweetness. Store bought happiness is different than making your own happiness too. Making your own can be as simple as picking a bouquet or enjoying a good workout.
