This post is about thankfulness and thereby happinesss.. I was thinking about thankfulness because of my wondertastic French teacher. She is always smiling, laughing, or enthused about something. When, she told the class her life story, I was surprised. There were many lovely parts of her story, ( she lived in Paris,France, and had an amazing family) but, there was some sad parts. She didn't dwell on the sad parts; but, even in them, she found something to be thankful for. She is always thanking someone, something, or someplace for this or that. That is part of the reason why she is so infectiously cheerful . Her thankfulness is a version of seeing the silver lining of the cloud.
From her I've learned: In life, evil never gets a complete win. Good always gets in a few points. If we can see the points good scored in any situation and be thankful for them, we can find serenity and cheer in even the worst of times .
Speaking of thankfulness and principles, I have decided on my personal act of appreciation for my bombtastic 21. I am going to post at least four posts a week, every week for them and for all. If I don't, I promise it will be for a reason much better than homework. Much thanks for reading. Many many warm feelings and hugs.
