Learning From Sweetness

Thursday June 2, 2016 #807

“It’s so hard to forget pain, but it’s even harder to remember sweetness. We have no scar to show for happiness. We learn so little from peace.”

 ~Chuck Palahniuk

807

It is incredibly important to intentionally reflect on our best moments, from great victories, to simple sweet joyful experiences.  But it is more typically human to retain memory of pain and sadness. It takes great effort to remember the good things.  Be intentional.  Take time frequently to reflect with gratitude on the thousands of wonderful moments in our lives.  This practice has been proven to stimulate joy and feelings of happiness and contentment, as well as to help us find and experience even more joy for ourselves and inspire it in others.
