This is a great quote and a great mentality on life and of course on Happiness. I will admit Happiness/Optomism does not come by nature to me. I tend to be a pessimist, I want to see how I can fix everything and make it "better", but then I dont take time to enjoy that "better", I move on to the next negative thing. I'm sure I come off as the biggest complainer ever. I dont know why I do it. It frustrates me to no end and I'm sure I am no joy to be around for everyone else. Its not a good personality trait at all. I really would love to have a happy, go lucky attitude and just love everything that goes on around me. Its not that I don't find joy or happiness in my life, because I do I love my life so much and I know I am so blessed, I just have a hard time portraying my happiness. Anyway I am going to try and live this quote more fully. I am going to love all of lifes inperfections or at least tollerate them and try hard NOT to dwell on them. I will focus on vocalizing my happiness more and seeing more of the positive in myself, my situtation, and in life in general.
Maybe if I quit focusing on my life so much and focused on others more I would have this issue of mine all cleared up.
How do you stay positive/find happiness and not dwell on the "imperfections" of life?
