Keep on moving forward

A quote from the movie The Pursuit of Happiness - (An incredible depiction of a man determined to overcome the million obstacles in his abnormally unlucky life to put a roof over his head and his son's. )

"Don't ever letsomebody tell you, you can't do something... not even me. You got adream...you gotta protect it.People can't do something themselves,they wanna tell you, you can't do it. 
You want something? Go get it. Period."

But I wake up every day knowing that they are nothing compared to the setbacks that many face each and everyday. And what keeps me going – what keeps me fighting – is that despite all these setbacks, that spirit of determination and optimism –

We have to be resilient, keep on pushing, to keep the dream alive

“Around here, however, we don’t look backwards for very long. We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things… and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.” –Walt Disney
Mistakes are a wonderful way to learn and something that can easily be taught to others if shared. Examine your mistakes and do more than learn from them yourself, share them with others.

You can gain a lot of trust in sharing mistakes and help others learn from those actions before they make the same mistakes.

Happiness is not something you seek, it’s not something you can find and its not something you can gain based on “if only…”, “when this…” and “as soon as this happens…” thinking.

Happiness is something you must believe you can have and you then have to choose to be happy. You can be happy with hardship and suffering all around you and under terrible circumstances in your life if you truly believe you have that choice.

For all those that need outside influences to be happy, you can provide that service and choose to be happy and to be an example of happiness for those around you regardless of the circumstances.

Above all, we have to thank God, for all that he does for us though we never seem to notice.

It takes great wit and interest and energy to be happy. The pursuit of happiness is a great activity. One must be open and alive. It is the greatest feat man has to accomplish.  Robert Herrick
