Got hold of an old notebook where I had some scribbled things on happiness . . .
How do you hang in there when you seem to be in a hopeless situation? Well, I read that you do as if you were climbing a mountain. Inch by inch, you claw your way out. You focus just on the present moment, taking one day at a time. Do what you can for the day at the present moment, trying very hard to see any light, the little good things that you can find.
Accept your current situation and then move on small step by small step. Every inch you take should be treated as a victory.
Hang in there.
Be happy and stay happy.
“We tend to forget that happiness doesn't come as a result of getting something we don't have, but rather of recognizing and appreciating what we do have.”
