A Winning Hand

Friday, May 17, 2013

Life consists not in holding good cards but in playing those you hold well." Josh Billings

We are complex creatures with many strength's and weaknesses. The trick to a happy successful life is using what you have the best way you can. When you do this often enough you will be happy with the results more often .

Don't always rely on your strength's to get you through. Find your weaknesses and sometimes make them stronger. Everyone has flaws, failures and disappointments. Everyone has sorrows and limitations. A secret is to care less and give more.

Be happy in the skin you walk in. Be happy with the state you are in. Be happy with what you have. Be happy in the moment more often.

We can only be who we are. We can only be as great as we want to be. We can only be as strong as we choose to be. We can always be as happy as we want to be.

If you don't like the hand your dealt with at the moment than shuffle the deck . See things in a new light . Hold the best hand every time.

    emoticon advice! Sometimes it's hard to remember to be happy in the moment and with your life the way it is. I think sometimes we tend to look at things from the perspective of how you wish things were different rather than being grateful for what you have and how things could be worse. Thank you for the reminder to happy in the moment and grateful for what I have. emoticon

    How true! Great food for thought. You know, I did just that. I was in an abusive marriage, I tried everything, but I couldn't help the person I loved the most. I finally found the courage to change my life and I left my home, my husband, my dog and all that was familiar to me. I miss alot of things from the past, but I am making a new life for myself. I have good days and bad days. But I give it all I have. I have a broken heart, but it will mend. I am proud of myself for the courage I found to do the hardest thing I have ever done!
