In life, we can either let our experiences make us bitter, or we can channel that feeling towards being a good example in order to improve things.

happiness

Many people think of happiness as a destination that they would like to get to. I use to feel the same way and kept waiting and waiting. But I found that really, we can be happy whenever we choose. However, it takes a lot of effort because sometimes we feel crappy. Especially when we're in a tough situation, or feel like we're not getting anywhere in life.
On the one hand, not feeling content motivates us to move forward toward our goals. But those goals may take a long time to accomplish and so we might as well try to enjoy life along the way while going forward.

Prag stole my comment so I'll seize the moment and smack him...sheesh lol

Force a smile they say. Impossible to sound angry or sad. Smile when you talk, even if it's with a little one and you'll feel amazing.

I'm curious, "just a number [I] came up with" (that's lovely and brilliant), do you recall how you happened upon my blog today?

Finding your blog was exactly what I needed. It wasn't what I was looking for, of course, but it was exactly what I needed.

Thanks. Would you mind terribly if I linked you to my blog? Bring a bit more light in?
