101 Ways to Be Really Happy: Step #32– Don’t take your life for granted


One of the things I admire most about my oldest and dearest friend, Edna, is that she has never taken her life for granted. In fact, she usually seems shocked at how she could have ended up with this great life, wonderful kids and grand kids, a good husband, the ability to travel, and pretty decent health for broads our age. From my perspective, it was no accident. She has led an exemplary life of compassion and caring.

Regardless of your circumstances, you can find something GOOD about them. If you’re having a hard time doing that, go visit the homeless shelter or the burn ward in your city. See what it’s like to REALLY have problems and then examine your circumstances one more time.

Life is precious. Ask anyone with a terminal illness.

Be thankful.
