Two Men Go to the Park...
MEN GO TO THE PARK: Mr. Happy notices the beautiful flowers, listens
to the birds chirping, and enjoys feeling the sun on his face and the
wind in his hair. Mr. Unhappy notices a few cigarette butts near a
bench and starts complaining about how people are so inconsiderate.
Then he starts complaining that the sun causes cancer, and the wind is
messing up his hair. They both were in the same place at the same time, but had two very different experiences.
Happiness isn't caused by your external environment. It is the way you
process the environment. You can either focus your attention on all the
beauty, and what is pleasant, or you can focus your attention on
everything that seems to be wrong with the world. The world is the
same, it's the way you look at it that will make life either happy or
miserable for yourself. See Happiness, and Be happy, my Friends- Laura Barrette Shannon
