An Optimistic View
A lot of things in today's world can really get us down, if we let them. Being on a mission can at times be like riding on a roller coaster. One minute things are going way good and the next minute something can happen that could ruin your day. At times I thought that my life would get better if only something would happen or when this one bad thing stops. I have come to realize that life is full of challenges but the trick is to be able to be happy even on the rough roads. I think one of the things that has helped me the most has been trying hard to look for the good and be optimistic. Attimes I was so focused on the bad things that happened to me that I was completely overlooking how blessed I had been. When I have made an effort to look for the good in things and have an optimistic view things seem to go a lot better. I think that when we desire to be happy it starts with thinking that we can no matter what trials we are going through at the time. I have never succeeded when believing that I couldn't do it and that has been something that I have tried to steer clear of. Thinking positively definitely sets up a course of success and happiness.
