Happiness comes from self-satisfaction and contentment. It comes from counting our blessings. When asked how he felt when a patient was deprived of his one leg, he replied, “I can walk with a crutch, see and smell the flowers around, eat and drink. I am much better than a blind man or a person with both his legs gone.”
Happiness has a lot to do with perspective and how we see ourselves as well as others. I know over the last few weeks I have been stuck in a bit of a personal rutt, making me feel pretty unhappy with myself. Seeing as its the beginning of a new week I decided to take a few minutes to myself, sit outside and listen to the birds and the rustling of the trees. I have written a list of things I need to do and how I will do them. I feel a sense of calm having written everything down, in fact I already feel this is a leap in the right direction.
always remember to be thankful for what you already have and determined and hopeful for what you want to achieve!
