Happiness – Having What You Want or Wanting What You Have – You Decide

happiness quotes

It is so easy to get caught up in the trap of always wanting more.

Or wanting what you can’t have.

Usually winter is a hard time for me. The lack of sunlight and cold dreary days take it’s toll.

This year I decided that I was going to look for the good and appreciate winter for what it was.

  • When it snowed – I would take my family sledding.
  • While it’s cold outside I will appreciate the cozy warm times spent indoors.
  • While it’s dark outside at 5:00 I will…uhh…I will…ok so I’m still working on that one 😉

But you get the point.

Remember the quote from Lincoln?

“People are just as happy as they make up their minds to be.”

It’s true!

It’s amazing how much happier one can be when making the decision to appreciate the good in each season – not only of weather but in LIFE.

Nothing illustrates this point better than this short article published in a “Dear Abby” column back in 1989. Funny how some things about human nature never change.
