Have you ever stopped to think about enjoying every day instead of complaining about each day? The word enjoy means, to have or experience joy; to get pleasure from, to have a good time. I know we won't enjoy everything that goes on in our lives, but we can receive pleasure from our lives every day that we have on this earth. It's amazing that we sometimes take for granted this gift we have called. One of the reasons we don't enjoy it more is an uncommunicated expectation of others and false expectations of how life is supposed to be. We have to rethink our attitudes towards things that go on and change the way we react to them. If every time you get some bad news it prevents you from enjoying life, then you have the ability to change that response and take responsibility to enjoy life every day. It's your call. Bad news is never the culprit; it's how you respond to it.
Think about how good life can be with just a small attitude adjustment. Don't get mad, angry or upset because of circumstances. Look at it as temporal and don't allow it to steal your joy.
