Adjust your sails

imageNo matter if we want to admit it, life is a mixture of up and downs, good and bad day and yep, we all will have bad days. Even the happiest people in the world have bad days. We just need to remember that bad times are short-lived (mostly).
The weight of mistakes, the frustration of failure, and the aches of injuries fuel the happy instead of dragging them down. They know these events are making them wiser and stronger.
Happiness isn’t a temporary state of mind. Happiness is an enduring faith that what goes around comes around.
It’s a lifestyle that requires acknowledging that you are willing to do the work to make tomorrow a better day.
In any situation, it’s not your specific circumstances that shape you, it’s how you react to your circumstances.
You can’t direct the wind, but you can always adjust your sails.
When it rains look for rainbows,
when it’s dark out, look for stars.
Making a habit of this takes time and practice, but the positive effects will change the trajectory of your life.
It’s not easy to do, it’s really not but all we can do is try.
So when you feel down, fed up, lonely, angry, lost, just look around you and notice something, anything that makes you smile on the inside and hold onto that imagine, which in turn will help turn your mood/day around.
