Happiness is a choice. Your circumstance can affect it, but you're still the one who decides your happiness...
Sometimes we all dwell too much on what's wrong in our lives and we forget to see the goodness surrounding us. I am certainly no exception to this rule. I would have to say that my life with Arvid and Brutus is very good. We have each other, we have our health, we have good times and there is an abundance of love . Yes, we sometimes disagree, but who doesn't?
Don't get me wrong. I love our life and would not change it for any other. Arvid and I have gotten to a point where we are completely en tuned to each other. Yes, there will always be small disagreements. We will not always agree with each other 100% of the time, but we will always stand by each other 100% of the time. Also, nobody really cares if you're miserable, so you might as well be happy.
We both have strong personalities so sometimes this can make for testy times, but at the end of the day Arvid is the one I want to spend forever with, and I know that he feels the same.
Just because a few things don't go according to the way you want don't give up. It is not always greener on the other side. Remember, if you want to be happy, be. Don't wait until it too late for you to realize this. Don't be like the person that said, "what a wonderful life I've had! I only wish I'd realized it sooner."
Be happy now!
Most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be..
until next time..
