"In our quest to experience the more seductive and exciting “highs,” we have lost sight of the fact that most of life, indeed a vast majority of it, is made up of small things and moments, one right after the other."

It was the quote above that made me sit down and realize I have so much to be grateful for and so do you.

There is a little bit of beauty in everything we see however you will only see it if you are in the right mindset. Instead of focusing on how much Mondays stink focus on how blessed you are to see another Monday or how great the weather is or your one more day closer to the weekend. Our minds are powerful and how we think is displayed through our actions and behaviors. 

In the perfect world I love to have a million dollars (I am sure we all would) however I don’t and at times I get frustrated about my finances but on the flip side all my bills are paid, I have a roof over my head, clean clothes on my back and food on the table. To me that is pretty darn good and there should not be much to complain about at all. 

I am not saying to walk around like everything is perfect and always have a big smile on your face but I am saying try to see the brighter side of your situation. Appreciate the little things because when you look back on your life you will remember the little things that made a difference.

The key to living a happy life is to live a series of happy days.

And even when things are not so rosey, be grateful. Look for the things to be learned and the wisdom to gain. Lessons ride the backs of events.
