Happiness and Appreciation

It’s been a while since I last posted. In that time I finished up my manuscript, read a lot, and started learning how to sew clothes.

I’m trying to be happy. I’m trying to live in the moment rather than in the future because I want to apply the lessons I learn in my favorite books and a lot of problems stems from not appreciating what you have.

I read somewhere that your brain is evolved to be unhappy. Anticipation does seem more sweet at times. Once you attain your goal it’s on to the next one and you wonder why you don’t have as much as your friend or someone you consider a rival. You think about the people who are luckier than you are and get absolutely green with envy.

I think it’s important to take a second and evaluate what you have. Remember the good more than the bad because they are equally as important.
