We want to do better, do more, eat less, exercise more, be a better person, do more of what is expected..... or not!
Life throws many curve balls at us. Things turn out not as we expect them to. People do things we cannot imagine why. We persevere and keep pushing forward, if we are lucky we do better than we thought we would, we improve, even just a little, people around us seem to smile more.
I want not to dwell on bad, sad, evil, terrible things that I can't do anything about, but move forward and hopefully make things a bit brighter if possible.
I read somewhere on the internet, now come on everything is written somewhere on the internet, honest. ;) That the best way to look at life differently is take a large jar, no now listen not a jar for money when you cuss, uh uh, a jar that whenever something good happens to make you smile, or even cheer you write it on a piece of paper and put it in the jar. Then on New Year's Eve you read all the good things that happened over the last year making you focus on good rather than bad.
Hey it couldn't hurt, really, it couldn't hurt, and it just might make one's attitude better. What a concept to focus on the good and happy moments and not dwell on the sad and unhappy ones. So here is my jar and now I will begin to fill it with HAPPY! (Just a note, I am not a Pollyanna, but isn't light better than darkness? Mayhaps we should gallop towards the light! )
