Quote of the month- June

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

june quote
‘Train your mind to see the good in every situation.’

Why this?
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. 
