The Glass Really Is Half Full

As I often point out in blog entries, the pace of life in the 21st century is crazy.

I look at that statement and I think, “I will probably achieve twice as much in my lifetime because I operate at that pace, than I would have in a previous generation!”

A glass half filled with water ... or perhaps half emptyI look at my life and see … possibilities and opportunities.

I look around me and am thankful for what I have.

I am often reminded of how lucky I am to be healthy.

I read news stories and recognise that Canada is a great place to live.

How do you live your life?

Do you try to look at the positives … or do you let those dark clouds into your mind?

I wrote a blog entry in the middle of the last recession called Now is a Great Time to Count Your Blessings.

If THEN was a great time just think about today’s timing!!!

When you are tempted to look on the “dark side”, take a few minutes to remember just how lucky you REALLY are.  I you are still having trouble seeing the positives then look at this lucky guy’s story … Nick Vujicic was born with no arms and no legs, and he is one of the most positive people you will ever meet!

Once Nick has you in the mood then go and enjoy Bobby McFerrin singing Don’t Worry Be Happy!

Being miserable will not make you feel better … and affecting (infecting?) people around you with YOUR misery is definitely not going to help!

Take responsibility for your own happiness … be a glass half full person!
