I find that yes it is hard to be happy, IF you look at the world around you,it can either be depressing
OR it can be a source if inspiration!!!
I chose to let it be a source of Inspiration!
I'm sure you've heard the expression "It Is Better To Light A Candle Then To Curse the darkness"
I find that i'm the most happy when I find a need and fill it!!
In other words, instead of seeing only the negatives in my lil corner of the hundred acre woods,
I look at them and see what i can do to lighten somebody elses load,I open my hands, mind and heart to the possibilities.....
sometimes it's as simple as saying to the elderly gentleman that just held a door open for me"THANK YOU YOUNG MAN!!" and then i watch the smile that appears on his face.
We never know what battle somebody else is fighting,Perhap's it's loneliness, fear,ect.....
with a smile on your face you can change somebodys world!!
I've always been kinda partial to this saying"In a dogsled team, the scenery never changes, unless your the lead dog" LOL
