I recently came across a terrific blog post claiming “The 15 Things To Give Up To Be Happy.” Although I agreed with most of them, some of them I didn’t. I don’t believe that those same 15 things will work for everyone. Nor do I believe that the 10 that I will share with you will work for everyone either.
I get asked on a daily basis how I am so happy despite my circumstances. How did I remain positive through all the changes that were taking place that surrounded my accident? Let me answer you this, I am happy in spite of my circumstances. Because of the things that I have learned on this journey, mostly the last 11 years of my life, that I would have never experienced otherwise. These experiences have shaped my life and made me who I have become today. There were times right after my accident that I am not proud of and I wish to not even recollect, but throughout that time and more recent times, these are the things that I have found truly work for me.
