In life, there will always be change. There will unfortunately always be woes and disappointment.
How do you start the day?
The trick to a happy life is focusing on the positives, no matter how small, and making the most of the pleasant moments.
I read the most inspiring quote on a travel blogger's page (Crazy Sexy Fun Traveller) She was in Central America, and asked the staff of the resort she was featuring ''What makes you happy every day?'' She repeatedly received an answer ''When I can wake up, I am grateful for another day of life.''
While this is not always easy to do, this should probably be the first thought that comes into our minds everyday. With another day, we can bring change, we can succeed, we can grow resilient. Most importantly, we may find happiness.
Still being alive when I wake in the mornings, thinking of my 2 children, 2 grand-daughters. my mother & in-laws who aren't in a nursing home yet& thinking how lucky we are to still have them, & still being married after 47 years.
