Currently, I'm sitting at Tiago's Cafe here in Hollywood, and it is a beautiful day! There are many beautiful things to look at, and focus on. There's a little bird that keeps walking by, it's it's funny, as he seems to be waiting for me to feed him. (Sorry, birdie, I'm just sipping on tea!) There are palm trees right in front of me, and the California sunshine is beaming down! Tourists area walking by and taking pictures of the with their favorite "star" on the "Walk of Fame."
On the other hand, there is a lot of traffic, there are people who are driving way too fast, and there are people that are smoking cigarettes right next to me. (I don't like that smell very much!) But you know what? As I've written about before, it is always very important to focus your time and energy on the positive things in your life. It takes just as much energy to focus my attention on the positive, beautiful things, as it does to focus on the negative, seemingly "annoying" things that are going on around me.
So much of our happiness comes from the way that we choose to view the world. Being happy is always a choice. Even when times are tough, choose to take things one minute at a time, and remind yourself that things will always get better.
Smile as much as you can!! :)
