We will never be happy if we continue to search for what happiness consists of. We will never live to the fullest if we keep on looking for the meaning of life. If we look at what we do not have, it seems that we don't have many things. But if we look at what we have and be grateful, we'll realize that we have everything.

Let us focus on living gratefully for our gift of life today because tomorrow is not promised. If we don't like something, let's change it. If we can't change it, let's change the way we think about it!

Whatever we dwell upon in our mind, we give power to. Of course it makes sense to focus on what we want rather than what we don't want. Yet there are many ways in which the things we don't want can sneak into our thinking.

Life must be lived and curiosity kept alive. One must never, for whatever reason, turn his back on life. I don’t believe people are looking for the meaning of life as much as they are looking for the experience of being alive. Savor life – savor All of life.–Unknown

Worry and doubt focus our thinking on what we don't want. Rather than worrying about the bad things that might happen, let's direct our actions toward making positive things happen.

Complaining can also get our mind sidetracked into thinking about what we don't want. What do we complain about? Rather than complaining, we should take action. Action moves us toward what we do want.

Anger is one more way to get our thinking negatively directed. Rather than getting angry about what we don't like, we should use that energy to give our determination for what we want to achieve.

Let's keep our mind positively focused on the good things that life can offer. Those things will grow stronger and more abundant in our world. Let's focus on enjoying life for it moves pretty fast. If  we don't stop and look around once in awhile, we could miss many good things. The secret to living the life that we dream is to start living the life of our dream.
