In Response To What Words To I Live By...

Someone else was inquiring about what people live by and so I thought I would post it here too. It probably is not all inclusive, but it sums it up. 

I believe everything happens for a reason. Good, bad or indifferent. 

I believe that although we can't change the past, but we can learn from it and with that become a better person. The Past Does Not Equal the Future. 

We can choose to change our lives and our destiny. Life is often about perception. Do we choose to view things negatively/pessimistically or positively/optimistically? It very much impacts how we are going to react and feel about any given situation. 

I've had the roller coaster of life's emotions from some incredible natural high's to some serious lows which once almost led to suicide. 

I realize that yes the world can be a very bad and dangerous place to live. But it's also an incredibly awesome place to live too. I choose to be very optimistic about everything. I seek self improvement in all areas of my life. I try to help others where ever and whenever I can. I want to enjoy life to the fullest. I want to travel the world and experience other people, cultures and lands. I truly want to get the most out of my life. 

I avoid negative people and situations if at all possible. 

My life is not perfect by any means, but that doesn't do anything except to help me redouble my efforts at self improvement and achieving my goals and trying to be as happy as I can be. 

Happiness comes from within. If we seek it in others, we are more than likely going to be disappointed. If we find or have great friends or someone we can love and give our life too then that is an awesome added bonus. 

Best Wishes! Mel
