This is very true! I need to laugh way more than cry. Favorite movies or shows can produce chuckles as well as some events that happen in real life. My cats doing funny stuff is one example. They're often more comical than what's on TV. As for sleep, I can never get on a normal cycle due to my crazy work schedule, so it's an extreme rarity to have a full, desired slumber. When I can, I go for it, and rest up as much as I need it. And to think I hated naps as a toddler. Now I long for them more than ever!
If I had a dollar for every time I thought about a negative incident in my past, I could easily retire as a millionaire! It seems that we usually think about the bad stuff over the good due to them having such a strong impact. Something bad happened, and we remember it more to make sure we don't make the same mistake twice. What we should try to focus on is the good stuff, to keep our spirits held high. It can be achieved, we just have to make it so!
I find myself complaining more than I should, especially when so many have it much worse. It's a habit, and we're creatures of habit. Things bother us, we're going to be vocal about it, that's understandable. I long to be rich or at least comfortable financial-wise, but I'm the one who has to make that change. Things are bad for us, but they could be worse. We all have our health, a roof over our heads, and no one in our family is in trouble like in prison for drugs, alcohol abuse, or murder. I'd say we're doing fairly well. It really could be worse for us, but since it isn't, that's a good thing!
This is one of the most wisest metaphors ever when it comes to your life. Tea can be made strong or weak, and then it can taste bitter or sweet. How you choose to live your life reflects on the choices you make.
One of my favorites has been this one. It means just that. Find happiness for yourself, whether you've got an audience or not. And once that's established, everything else sinks into place.
So, yeah, that's just a few Proverbs. They're ones I need to focus on more, and knowing I won't at times isn't good! I just like their meaning behind them and wanted to share. That's all.
Anyway, hope the rest of Monday (and now Tuesday in other parts of the world ) is going well for everyone. Take care for now.
