Today I am thankful that I can say “Life is good.”
Recently I posted a birthday greeting to a friend who is my age. In her reply she thanked me and added “Life is good.” That made me smile. Like all of us she has her share of issues to contend with, and yet she is able to remain positive and grateful, and views her life as good.
I started wondering how many of us could say “Life is good,” and sincerely mean it. It isn’t easy. We all have struggles, and worries known to no one but ourselves. I know that I do my share of grumbling, and I see many things in the world that concern me. Yet in recent years I have come to the realization that I am blessed, and yes, life is good.
Attitude is everything. We can focus on the negatives and things we wish were different… and be unhappy; or we can focus on the positives and come to terms with things we can’t change… and learn to count our blessings.
How do you want to spend your days, and what impact do you want to have on others? Me, I want to share some light and spread the word that life is good!
