I’ve heard it said that your living is determined not so much by what life brings you as by the attitude you bring to life; not so much by what happens to you as by the way your mind looks at what happens.


My grandma’s wise words ring as true today as when I was a child, feeling miserable and unhappy. “There is no danger of developing eye strain from looking on the brighter side of things,” were her words to me. Since those days, the world has changed a great deal and so have I. I have lived long enough to appreciate grandma’s effort in trying to motivate me to look on the brighter side of life. I firmly believe looking on the positive side helps one to expect only the best in themselves as well as others.

On that note, here are a few thoughts I’ve learned that help to look on the brighter side of life.

I’ve learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life goes on, and it will be better tomorrow. Regardless of your relationship with your parents, you will miss them when they are gone from your life.
