Not the most inspiring quote.
Don’t we prefer something completely optimistic?
Do we want realism in our quotes?
In quote world, one phrase is enough and all your problems disappear.
Repeating it to yourself and to others can help to make it real.
As drops of water slowly fill a jar, so little quote drops fill the jar of your mind with impractical optimism.
But isn’t the reality of happiness more practical?
Perhaps my quote wouldn’t fit through the neck of most peoples happiness jar.
But how can you be happy without money in this world?
You can be happy with enough , you can learn to be frugal.
As Charles Dickens wrote :
Mr Micawber’s famous, and oft-quoted, recipe for happiness: “Annual income twenty pounds, annual expenditure nineteen [pounds] nineteen [shillings] and six [pence], result happiness. Annual income twenty pounds, annual expenditure twenty pounds ought and six, result misery.” –
There are so many definitions and images of successful lives around us. As if being successful and more rich is being happier and more right.
Yet we all fail in life. I have many times and I am still failing in various ways in many different ways.
Yet I am happy.
I have had enough success that my failures can accumulate without affecting the food on the table.
I can watch the sunrise or stay in bed safe and warm.
So my quote far fills up with drops of happiness, but I had to smash the top of it so those darned quote-drops would fit in.
How do you stay happy?
