It’s very easy to focus on the negatives–to count up all of the bad things that happen in our lives. But when you find that you are at a really good place in your life–comfortable with the decisions you’re making, happy with where you live and who you’re with–that’s when you realize that all of those little problems were not problems at all. They were little hurdles that led you to the gold at the end of the rainbow–to the treasure. If you hadn’t jumped over those hurdles, you would never have reached the treasure. So those little hurdles are things to be celebrated. It just takes a different perspective to understand that where you are right now at this very moment is where you are supposed to be. All of the things that are happening in your life are there for reason–to teach you a lesson, to help you overcome, or to help you get stronger–and once you’ve learned that lesson, no matter how hard it was to learn it, that’s when you reach the treasure–true happiness.
