"The ideal man bears the accidents of life with dignity and grace, making the best of circumstances." ~ Aristotle Taking what life has to offer, and what we in our daily lives can embrace and use BACK in our own life to enhance and accentuate it, is the balance we seek. Basic little things in life can provide for much more happiness than we give them credit for. Happiness is a 'frame of mind', a frame one can fill with the most decorative images, memories and aspirations you choose. I am feeling a little better today although the meds have me drowsy and napping every hour or so - It is not easy for any one person to say they have found happiness, but by the definition of Contentment it may be perceived that most of us are Happy. I feel old but in a way content - not yet totally happy. "Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude." ~ Denis Waitley

One thing I read somewhere many years ago and which hit home for some reason is that happiness is a choice. Perhaps this is a bit simplified really but you can choose to let things upset you or you can choose to 'be happy'. Sometimes it works for me - when I remember to apply it.

Balance is such an important tool. The other day I could feel myself slipping out of control and my sister saw it. She simply said "Stop, right now we are safe, together, and we can only control right now." It helped.
