Be careful not to focus on what it could have been or you won't appreciate it for what it is.
Nothing is perfect so don't expect things to be perfect.
You can't be thankful for what you got until you acknowledge what you got so you can appreciate what you got.
You have to look for the positive in every situation so you can have a positive outlook.
If you look for trouble you will find it.
If you look for a way to have the best outcome you will see what you need to do to have the best possible positive outcome.
What you look for is what you will find.
Like they say seek and you shall find.
How you look at it will determine what you see.
You can't have a feeling without first having a thought.
Your thoughts are the reality that you will live whether it is the reality or not.
Peter Pan could only fly if he thought happy thoughts so be like Peter Pan and think happy thoughts so you can fly.
