Find what makes you happy
Since I have started blogging, I have heard some amazing stories from other people who've said how much I touched them with my story. I want to say thank you to all those who've shared their stories with me. Everything from those going through a divorce, having Multiple Sclerosis, cancer, losing their jobs, and even losing a loved one. Somehow after sharing personal stories with these people, every conversation has ended the same way: with happiness. Throughout all our tough times, it's finding what makes us happy that will always help us get through life. A blind man told me this afternoon that he has never once opened his eyes only to see nothing. At first I was confused.....but I've never really known what it's like to be blind. So I asked the man to explain what he meant. He replied, "mister, you don't need eyes in order to see blue skies, sunshine, and smiles. All you need is happiness and love". He made me realize that it's up to us to find what makes us happy in order to make it through life everyday. Just being able to share stories like this one is what makes me happy. Imagine how many times people have ignored him because he is "different". He didn't care, because he was happy in his mind and in his heart. So if you're sad, depressed, or upset about anything, just try and find what makes you happy, and do it. It's much easier to be happier. After all, just because someones blind doesn't mean they can't see.
