Friday Fortune Cookie!
"No person is a failure who is enjoying life."
This year I was fortunate enough to visit the city of Nassau, Bahamas. Before my visit I heard a lot of statistics as to how poor this little island country was.
The average income is only 4,000 dollars per year.
But upon arriving I was greeted by a lot of happy people. I figured they were paid to be happy for the tourists but it was a nice change from most places I visit.
Then when I got to my hotel, there were more of these happy people. Again I figured they were paid to be happy but it was still a nice change.
Later that day I actually got out into the city, where the locals hang out, and you guessed it- more happy people!
I began to realize that these people were happy despite their circumstances, because they enjoyed what has been given to them for free.
Fresh fruit, a sea of fish, beautiful weather, nobody seemed to care about how much money they made or what kind of car they drove.
Just goes to show no matter what your circumstances, there are always good reasons to be thankful, and you always have the choice to be happy.
Have a great weekend!
