Being Happy No Matter What

Waking up in the morning represents to me an opportunity.

The chance to be greatful  for what I have , it’s the little things that can make life so enjoyable.

Why get upset about a job that doesn’t pay enough instead of looking at it as a place holder that helps bring me income while I plan other things and put them into place.

I appreciate my children who bring as much happiness into my life as stress. My wife who’s taught me to grow through happiness and confrontation.

I’m happy about a cool spring day that lets me take in nature and the sounds around me.

I love my not so new car that takes me where I want to go.

I’m happy about the people I work with, I always learn something new form them, even when under stress and it helps me grow.

It’s too easy to wake up with discontent and anger, and then follow it with blame on something or someone.

The key to life is yours, attitude and vision is all that can stand in the way.

 

Always Smile

I, as  a typical earthbound human being who’s been around a little while have has my shares of up and downs during my life and while I feel I’ve changed dramatically over the course of the last few years.

One of the habits I’ve learned and implemented in my life is to always as much a I can, be polite. No matter what or how my day is going or how I feel.

I always find it interesting that some people I know have absolutely no sense of self control when having a bad day. we’ve all been there, the rude cashier at the local super market or the indifferent government employee that shows absolutely no desire to help you or answer a simple question.

Being consistently polite  takes practice, and like exercising or meditating becomes habit only after some time.

Every day I go into a store or coffee shop, pass somebody in a hallway, I always make eye contact and give a smile. The person in focus doesn’t always respond in kind or just refuses to acknowledge anything.

Everyday is a battle to remain balanced in a world that seems to be listing over to the side as it takes on water.

This is an absolutely  silly  post created early in the AM, but I think It’s something worth mentioning.
