“A good life is when you assume nothing, do more, need less, smile often, dream big, laugh a lot, and realize how blessed you are.” – Anonymous
Is it really that simple to have a good life? In many ways I actually believe it is. I really think that so much of our level of happiness in life depends on us – on our own attitude and how we handle the circumstances life throws us. But without question it is a daily challenge to keep our own attitudes in check. I know it is a daily struggle for me. I have to constantly remind myself to “snap out of it”, or to “let it go”, or to “see the positive”, or to “stop stressing out”, or that “it will all be okay in the end”. Some days I wish that it wouldn’t take so much reminding for me to recognize what I already know in my heart – MY LIFE WILL BE AS HAPPY AS I DECIDE TO LET IT BE.
I believe that is the case for all of us. We have to tell ourselves to do the things in the opening quote – assume nothing, do more, need less, smile often, dream big, laugh a lot, and realize how blessed we are. If we can do those things every day then of course we will be happy. Even in hard times those things will help us stay happy and positive. And that equates to a very GOOD LIFE!
Have a HAPPY DAY!
