There is no way life was created to be lived for naught. Happiness enters our life every moment and deserves to be at the forefront of our endeavors.
Unfortunately there is a lot of agony and disgust in our world. If we allow ourselves to accept the miserable elements of life, we should also seize the moments in life that give us delight. In our realm, life is guaranteed to throw good and bad at us. Balance, recognition, and reconciliation of ups and downs are key to a happy life.
When things are bad, step back and realize they will not last forever. When things are good, also realize they will not last forever. Every upward cycle is followed by a downward cycle and vice versa. We need to understand that conditions do not last forever. Eventually a correction or a balance occurs to reset things to the norm. When that reset occurs, happiness should be the standard.
Why lead a life focused on the dread in our world? Acknowledge it but don’t dwell on it, allow happiness to dominate all negativity and allow cheerfulness to surface. Our reaction to good or bad will determine how we are perceived by others. Goodness and happiness can always overcome darkness and dread by consciously making an effort to bring calmness to the surface, by getting rid of the storm and the rough seas, and by seeking spiritual guidance to steer a path to happiness. We should understand life must be lived with the realization that we all have a mission to accomplish. That mission is to lead a responsible life of happiness and fulfillment.
Life is not lived for naught unless we embrace and fully ingest the negativity which is spewed upon us from various sources. No one wants to be around a person who thrives on negativity, agony, and disgust. Life can be full of happiness if our mindset is focused on creating it. Happiness is the motivation which brings fulfillment and inspiration to our existence. Our life is not a solitary life lived for ourselves. Our life is full of diverse qualities which shouts for happiness and is full of actions which must imprint desirable traits for others to embrace.
Acknowledge the bad and be aware of its presence, but more importantly, seek and live to embrace goodness and happiness. In doing so, life is never lived for naught.
