The greatest cause of the problems of life that leads to disatisfaction, strife, despondency, social/mental disharmony and subsequent life threatening ailments is that we always count our loses which are at all times insignificant when compared to our blessings.
It is the irony of life that man is programmed to remember those things that causes him pain than those that gives him joy and happiness. No wonder the Bible says that “weeping may endure for a night but joy comes in the morning”. The night always appears longer than the morning whereras our waking moments are longer than our sleeping moments.
If you take time to consider it, you will find that the times we are happy as humans are much more than the times that we are sad. The good times in life are always more than the bad times, but we always tend to remember the bad times. Pain has the tendency to register more than joy. Thereign lies the problem of humanity.
The greatest secret to living a happy and stress free life is to remember the many times you are happy over the times that you were sad.
Count your blessings instead of your loses, and you will be amazed how happy you will be.
