Life is full of hardships. Problems never seem to come alone, and everyday we see and hear things on the news that can bring down even the most cheerful of people. Sometimes we seem to be drowning in negativity and the only outlook on life we could possibly have is a pessimistic one.
But, life is full of wonders too. And sometimes we forget that. We forget to appreciate what we have, we forget to pay attention to the little things that bring joy.
Yes, of course bad things happen and will keep happening. But it’s the way we react to them, the way we choose to respond, that can lead us either to peace and happiness, or to despair and misery.
This is a list by Diply, of people who are doing the best they can in their circumstances. Always look on the bright side of life, right? Just find a way to laugh at your misfortune – it sure beats the alternative.
