I found this book in the free bin at 2nd and Charles. The title intrigued me, so I decided to read it.
The premise of the book can be summed up in this one quote,
“Right now, in this moment, without moving from where you are, you can find ample evidence to prove your life is miserable, depressing, and a terrible burden, or you can find evidence to prove your life is an abundant, joyful, exciting adventure.”
The book contains information on how to change you perspective and on how to deal with difficult situations. It was an interesting read and I am glad I gave it a chance.
To truly laugh, you must be able to take your pain and play with it. (Charlie Chaplin)
Find a place inside where there’s joy, and the joy will burn out the pain. (Joseph Campbell)
Bad things do happen; how I respond to them defines my character and the quality of my life. I can choose to sit in perpetual sadness, immobilized by the gravity of my loss, or I can choose to rise from the pain and treasure the most precious gift I have — life itself. (Walter Anderson)
While you are going about your busy life, don’t forget to spend some time making memories.
- Hang out with family and friends

- Go to a local museum
- Go to a park
- Spend time in nature
- Drive in the country
- Have a picnic
- Play board games
- Fly a kite
Whatever it is you decide to do, have fun and make a memory.
If you spend your life waiting for the storm, you’ll never enjoy the sunshine. – Morris West
