Wasn’t it just last week when the year began? How are we already half way through 2017? As the month of June comes to a very quick end, I’d like to share with you my quote of the month
‘Train your mind to see the good in every situation.’
June is my birthday month, as I turn another year older, (although not grey haired, just yet) I am learning about how simple the secret to happiness really is. It is only me, myself and I that can truly make me happy, as long as I learn to see the positive side of every story, the silver lining to every grey cloud and the good in every situation.
We live in a world where everything is filtered. It is so easy for the green-eyed monster to creep up as we are scrolling along our Instagram feed. As much as I don’t want to, I can’t help but wonder while looking at the square photos on my feed, that why don’t I have the clothes that are on trend, why haven’t I travelled to these exotic locations and why haven’t I achieved my career goals like the others seem to have.
And it’s in that moment when I put my phone away and look at what I already have. I may not have what’s on trend right now, but atleast I can sleep peacefully at night knowing I am not buying on credit and am debt-free. I may not be travelling right now to these beautiful places on Earth, but it’s only motivating me to work and save up more for a holiday in the future. I may not be having a 9 to 5 job in the corporate world with techy colleagues, but I have a very important, valuable and irreplaceable job at home right here with my family, and some amazing blogger friends, whom I wouldn’t have met otherwise.
Life never goes as planned. However, you only have one life and you have the choice to make it a happy one.
