Attitude is everything

"The most important thing is to enjoy life - to be happy - that's all that matters".

"I heard a definition once: Happiness is health and a short memory! I wish I'd invented it, because it is very true".

"Not to live for the day, that would be materialistic - but to treasure the day. I realize that most of us live on the skin - on the surface - without appreciating just how wonderful it is simply to be alive at all".

A happy life has been pursued in every culture, in every country, in every generation. But after all this time, there are still no rules for how to get it. And the more you try to pin it down, the more elusive it seems.

By now, we surely know that money can't buy it. There are those who have very little and are very happy. And others who seem to have it all, but are not.

Still, we all look for the next reason to be happy. What if it is not about what happens to us, what we own or where we live, but how we look at it? Maybe those rose-colored glasses aren't such a bad idea after all...
