You are very right, buddy. Perception is everything. You may either live a happy life because of all the happy things in it, or you may live the same life but perceive it as depressing because of all the depressing things in it. That's it, really.Another note on this Barry, I wrote an article with Bethany Hamilton in it. She is the one who lost her arm to a shark attack and still continued to pursue her dreams of being a professional surfer. Her quote states “Strive to find things to be thankful for, and just look for the good in who you are!”
Sometimes we need to take a moment to focus on those things and stop focusing on the negatives.
