With so many negative things happening around us and the focus of not only the media, but ourselves on the stories of tragedies and sorrow, it occurs to me that life can be very sad.
Sometimes when it’s quiet, in those rare moments of solitude, I focus on what my current state of being is. I find many times that it’s so much easier to fall in to sadness or depression wallowing for hours on end on the unfairness of the world. The reason its easy is because like gravity, negatively pulls us down into a comfortable abyss of darkness that is hard to leave.
Happiness and contentment on the other hand are not as easy. How many times have you been told by a motivational speaker or life coach to make a list daily of what you are thankful for? That we have to make a list, take the time to find the good things is strange to me. Yet it’s worthwhile to try the exercise when feeling drawn to the deep end of the pity pool.
Now I was going to list all the poopy stuff going on in my life, but I won’t give it the power of another second of thought. Instead I’m going to list five great things that I can smile about and thank God for.
1. Good Heath (Always a good thing)
2. A Wonderful husband (love him!!!)
3. Amazing friends (aka safety Net)
4. I live in America!
5. My writing, the creative outlet for my imagination!
Life is Good!!!
