I think a lot of times we get so caught up with the things we are doing in life that we forget to stop and look around and be thankful and appreciative for all we have, whether that's a little or a lot.
It can be easy to focus on the negative aspects of our lives and what we don't have or what we want to where we stop being happy all together. We focus on mistakes or what someone may have said to us. We let ourselves be brought down easily. We all go through hard times. We have to change how we let those events affect us. Instead of using the sadness or allow the hatred to get the best of us, we should take these times to learn and grow in our lives.
Smile, laugh and choose to be happy. Surround yourself with positivity and brush the negativity away.
Life is not always easy. You will not always be happy about any and every little thing. There will be some people you won't be excited to see or places you won't be excited to go. Life will be more than cookies and smiles.
But life is a positive thing. Life is a blessing that we can take for granted. Live your life to the fullest by being happy. Love exactly who you are and what has made you into you. Your life is yours only. Count your blessings, not your problems.
