No More "In Repair"

I got this little blurb in my email inbox today. It really cements the discussion I had with Patty. I know it won't be overnight, but I really do want to get some happiness in my life, and that will have to come from a more positive attitude. I'm sick of being "in repair" and I'm going to change that on my little side quote bar. When I had the more positive stuff, life seemed better, I swear when I changed that, things weren't going as well.

Happiness is a state of mind, not a way of life or a destination that you'll
reach one day. Bumps in the road of life are to be expected, and we cannot
let them ruin our days. We often think that if a combination of factors
would just fall into place THEN we would finally be happy. Satisfaction can
only come from within, through truly accepting yourself, your life, and your
circumstances. During this life you'll have many hard days--long work days,
sleepless nights, worrying about the future, etc. This week, think about the
joys of your life. Find creative ways to enjoy the little bumps in the road.

Amen! We all have a level of brokenness, why keep dwelling on it.

"I don't need another HEEEEEEEEROOOO." The song's stuck and that's all I know.

I love your attitude. It's important to make yourself more positive rather than waiting for the rest of the world to do it for you.
