We all have our good days and our bad ones, the difference being how you approach the problem. Some people just put their problems to the side and say they will deal with it later. This doesn’t make the problem go away, it only puts it aside for another day, sometimes compounding things. If you deal with what ever the problem is, you can possibly change the outcome and sometimes you can’t. The problems you can not change you have to face and resolve them. Believe me, if you don’t, they can/will come back to haunt you.
Everyone has problems – like a line of warriors you have to break through and conquer. You might loose the war, but you didn’t give up, and that is okay, because YOU will live to fight another day!
Stay positive, have a positive attitude and don’t let someone else bring you down. Try and see the good all around you despite the bad day you may be having. Take a walk with the dog, looking around at the beauty our Lord has given to us. We really are very fortunate individuals. Smiling more actually does make you a happier person inside. So, I say…..show off that beautiful smile, you might brighten up your neighbors day. After working if you spend time with friends rather than cooping yourself up in your home, this will make you a happier person.

So many times I have been out shopping and have noticed people do not smile as much anymore. Whether they are just to busy with their day which is influencing the way they interact with people, or they just do not have the time to say a quick hello. Maybe they are just not trusting of people in general because of so much violence in America. I really do not know the answers, but I do know it effects people. I am just the opposite, I talk to anyone that is in front or behind me in line. Maybe it is a generational way of life that I grew up in. I just wish people looked happier and smiled more, I miss this.
