My Norwegian grandmother was a great lady...

My Norwegian grandmother always reminded me that there is always, always something to be thankful for. And that no matter how good or bad you have it, wake up each day thankful for your life, because someone somewhere else is desperately fighting for theirs.

Truth be told, happiness is not the absence of problems, but the ability to deal with them. Imagine all the wondrous things your mind might embrace if it weren’t wrapped so tightly around your struggles. Always look at what you have, instead of what you have lost. Because it’s not what the world takes away from you that counts; it’s what you do with what you have left.
