Bit of Happy #58: There’s No Guarantee

2 Dec

“Life comes without guarantee – except that smiling will brighten your face, laughing will enhance your eyes and falling in love will change your life.”
-Anonymous

Why am I so crazy about this quote?! Then again, how can you not be? It’s true that there’s no guarantee that life will be a walk in the park. Actually, you can almost guarantee that it won’t be. It’s messy, challenging and sometimes even seems unfair. WAY unfair. And this quote doesn’t stray away from the truth; however, it does take a step away from the uncertainties and a step toward some of the more optimistic aspects of life.

And if you ask me, that’s a pretty amazing way to be – to recognize the reality of the uncertainties that exist in life, but to NOT allow them to keep you from being happy. To NOT allow them to keep you from brightening your face with a smile, enhancing your eyes with a laugh and changing your life by falling in love.

Now do you see why I love, love, LOVE this quote?! I thought so.

    I love that quote, too! It’s a way for me to remember to take it day by day, too, and to stay upbeat. Life can be unpredictable — but in good ways, too!
