Although it is challenging for me to work with others who have cancer considering I am a cancer survivor as well, I still try to find joy in each day and will not let cancer stand in the way of my happiness. It really has a lot to do with the very powerful tool we all have which is our attitude.
I have found three quotes on the Internet from unknown authors that perfectly sum up how I feel about happiness.
~”When I was 5 years old, my mom always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I did not understand the assignment, I told them they did not understand life.”
~”I think we like to complicate things when it is really quite simple; find what it is that makes you happy and who it is that makes you happy ad you are set. promise. “
~”We tend to forget that happiness doesn’t come as a result of getting something we don’t have, but rather of recognizing and appreciating what we do have.”
