i was surfing the wordpress files and saw this site with this excerpt from it:
“Happy people do not experience one success after another and unhappy people, one failure after another. Instead, surveys show that happy and unhappy people tend to have had very similar life experiences. The difference is that the average unhappy person spends more than twice as much time thinking about unpleasant events in their lives, while happy people tend to seek and rely upon information that brightens their personal outlook.” ~ Lyubomirsky 1994.

i do have to agree with this one. when i was younger i have so much drama in my life and i spent everyday sulking on my bed or crying in my sleep, grieving on how bad my situation in life is. but after i was shown how to just be happy with everything that ive got, i started to become happier each day, no matter what the circumstance is. i just seem to forget how dreadful my day was and just went on and deal with the current events.
