I write a lot about looking for the negative aspects of mental health. Today I was reminded about happiness.
Happiness seems elusive but if we can balance our view, happiness is there and directly parallel to negativity.
For example, my car engine exploded, I got a newer and better car.
My sunglasses fell apart, so I borrowed my daughters so I could drive.
A family member died and I was reminded about how loved and supported I am.
I got an infection in my tooth and got antibiotics, I cared for myself and took back my health.
These simple occurrences can be the ones that are the most annoying and have us lose sight of the good parts.
Take a moment to reflect how an annoying situation turned out right.
