Summary: Be grateful for what you have, not discouraged by what you don't have.
You can make a choice whether to be happy or sad. Take time to enjoy your children, your job -- not just endure but actually enjoy the everyday things.
Don't allow other people to keep you from being happy. We can't control people or circumstances -- we can only control how we respond to them.
Having joy gives you strength. You can make choice -- either be happy or be sour.
Don't wait for things to get better before you change your attitude. Enjoy things first by changing your attitude and have faith that things will get better.
