Cancer sure has a way to get you down. Make you feel like crap and be depressed. Don’t let it win! Be happy now!
Some people are waiting for that special moment to be happy. Waiting for the Cancer to be gone! Waiting for the perfect mate, waiting for the right job, waiting for the house to be paid off, waiting for the kids to finish college. If you keep waiting for the perfect moment to be happy, you will never be happy.
You have to be happy right now, in the present, then you will be happy in the future. Happiness is a mental habit, a mental attitude, and if it’s not learned and practiced in the present it will never be experienced.
Happiness cannot be waited upon until all problems are solved. Every time a problem is solved another one comes along. Life is a series of problems. If you’re to be happy at all, you must be happy in the here and now.
Abraham Lincoln quoted: “Most people are about as happy as they make up their minds to be.”
We have let the little things make us unhappy for so long, it has become a habit to have frustrations, dissatisfaction’s and irritability. Things that make us that way are a blow to our self esteem, so we react as being unhappy.
You need to stop letting circumstances and other people dictate how you feel. Change your attitude, change your out look and change your feelings. Form the habit of reacting positively toward problems. Practice keeping a positive attitude. Continue to do this and you will be happy in the present and in the future. This worked wonders for me when I was battling breast cancer. I surrounded myself with happy people and, I AM a cancer survivor!!
