“Happiness is a fleeting moment of a day. It’s not a state of being. If you’re happy all the time, something’s wrong with you. We are put on this earth to toil and make things. Making the world a better place is not a happy job.”
I saw this quote by John Mellencamp in my AARP magazine (blush, yes, I am THAT old!) and I thought it was brilliant!
Too many of us think that the world owes us happiness! You Make your happiness in this world!
Let me give you a small example. I’m headed down the road for a long drive, when I come across this:
In the tiny town of Malone, Texas is a Drive Thru Liquor Store! Only in Texas, I suppose. This cracks me up Every Time I drive thru this tiny town of 267 people. I guess there’s not a lot to do in Malone. 🙂
I could be whining about the long drive. I could be complaining about the heat that day, but instead, I do my best to focus on what makes me smile! This drive takes me through some really beautiful country.
I know we all have negative things to deal with. We All have Stuff. That’s just life. My point is this. I hope that no matter what is happening in your life, you can find something in your day to smile about.
