"When it gets dark enough,
you can see the stars." (Annonymous)
"Many of us live the first half of our adult lives postponing satisfaction...
and the last half with regrets.
Fulfillment seems always to be just over next hill..." ("The Achilles Syndrome" by Dr. Harold Bloomfield)
Life will always have its share of difficulties-and in the midst of them, you can choose to be a fulfilled, caring, loving, healthy, and balanced person. Learn to choose hapiness in this moment in spite of your current circumstances. Instead of concentrating on why you cannot be happy...focus your attention on all that is good. It is possible to find happiness where you are...when you put your mind to it.
A man named Paul put it best...
"I've learned by now to be quite content whatever my circumstances. I'm just as happy with little as much, with much as little. I've found the recipe for being happy whether full or hungry, hands full or empty. Whatever I have, wherever I am, I can make it through anything in the One who makes me who I am..." (Phil 4:11-13)
There's an old familiar quote that reminds us, "Today is a gift, that's why they call it the "present!" Your life is a gift. So take your present, unwrap it carefully, open it gently, and live it intensely!
