Thought for the Day  

“When one door of happiness closes, another opens, but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one that has been opened for us.”  ~ Helen Keller

The level of happiness and peace we experience in life largely depends on our perspective.  Life is filled with unexpected events and circumstances.  We must be resilient and possess a positive outlook in order to handle life’s uncertainties with grace and ease.  If something does not go as planned today, do not get stuck in the negativity of the unexpected situation.  Instead, bounce back with a positive outlook.  You have more control over the happiness and peace in your life than you may realize.

Today, set the intention to be resilient and think positive with whatever events and circumstances come your way.
