The Pursuit of Happiness: “Never give up, give thanks instead.”

Never Give Up!

It’s that time of year when we start thinking about where we’ve been where we are and where we want to go.   We ask ourselves; are we happy, is this all there is, what more do we want, rather than thinking about the real stuff.  We forget to give thanks for how fortunate we are to be here, to have this experience we call life, to have people in our lives, some who give us joy and others who teach us lessons.

Giving thanks for each challenge we’ve experienced, for each achievement we’ve obtained is the key to understanding and acknowledging happiness.  It is the force that keeps us going.

Below is a great passage by C. JoyBell C., a reminder that we should never give up and in doing so, we will be prepared for that which is yet to come.

“One day you’re going to miss the subway because it’s not going to come. One of these days, it’s going to break down and
it’s not going to come around, don’t be the kind of person who waits for the next one to come.”

“Let go, you’ve got to know that when things don’t happen the way you think they’re going to happen,
there’s always the bus, there’s always the next station…you can always take a cab.”
– C. JoyBell C.
