Life could always be better, but so can our level of gratitude

The mere “awesomeness” of a situation cannot force you to be happy against your own free-will.

There is no such thing as a person, place, event, or condition that is so awesome that it’s impossible to complain about.

Show me a great day and I’ll show you 101 ways in which it could have been better.

In any given scenario, there are possibilities for improvement.

These possibilities for improvement can easily beย thought of as “bad”, “evil”, “repulsive”, “insulting”, “distracting”, “disappointing”, or “disheartening.”

Here’s today’s two cents:

Happiness never has been nor ever will be the by-product of a contrast-free life.

The only happiness to be found is that which is an alchemical effect of the deep gratitude we choose to exercise towards the imperfect.

At least that’s the way I see it.
