Your Gratitude Burst – 2010 09 21
“The happiest people in don’t have the best of everything, they just make the best of everything they have.”
What a great quote! This is the secret to living an awesome life! I certainly do not have the most money in the bank. I don’t have the world’s best-est job. I don’t drive the fastest sport car, or have the top of the line luxury car. I do have a great life that I would not trade for anything!
Just yesterday a ‘relatively new acquaintance’ who is just starting to get to know me asked me, “Are you always this cheerful and optimistic, or are you full of cra_?” I have to tell you – that made my day!
I wanted to say, “Yes Virginia, there is a Santa Clause” – I am like this. I am happy. I do love the things I do, even when they tick me off. I am grateful for all the things I have – the good, the bad, and the ugly. They all make me who I am. I take the struggles. I learn the lessons (sometimes) and I constantly move ahead.
I have never said that my life is void of bad situations or that I ignore the trouble spots of my life. I understand that life is not fair. But that still does not prevent me from enjoying it and making the most of it.
I would also like to say Thanks to TrueFriend for joining as a friend on the website!
Go Make The Best of Everything!
