We're all going to get lumps, and we're all going to get bumps. None of us can predict the future, but we do know one thing about it and that's that it ain't gonna go according to plan. 

We will all have high highs and big days and proud moments of smiles, but between those high highs, we may also have some lumps and some bumps too.

Having a great attitude is about choosing, no matter how difficult it is, no matter what pain hits you, to move forward and move on and take baby steps into the future.

Try hanging out with three-year-olds and observe how they see the world because they're seeing the world for the first time. Having a sense of awareness is just about embracing your inner three-year-old. 

Because you all used to be three years old. That three-year-old is still part of you. And being aware is just about remembering that you saw everything you've seen for the first time once, too.

This is just about being you and being cool with that. When you're authentic, you end up following your heart, and you put yourself in places and situations and in conversations that you love and that you enjoy. 

You meet people that you like talking to. You go places you've dreamt about. And you end up following your heart and feeling very fulfilled.

There Are Many Things To Be Happy About

There Are Many Things To Be Happy About

 We are the only species on the only life-giving rock in the entire universe that we've ever seen, capable of experiencing so many of these things (airplanes, highway lanes, interior design, magazines, concerts, movies, architecture, horoscope signs. We've got fashion magazines, house party scenes, books, buffets, weddings, rollercoasters, bakeries, naps etc.)

We've got all that, but we've only got 100 years to enjoy it. And that's the sad part. Life is so great that we only get such a short time to experience and enjoy all those tiny little moments that make it so sweet.

And that's why I believe that if you live your life with a great attitude, choosing to move forward and move on whenever life deals you a blow, living with a sense of awareness of the world around you, embracing your inner three-year-old and seeing the tiny joys that make life so sweet and being authentic to yourself, being you and being cool with that, letting your heart lead you and putting yourself in experiences that satisfy you, then I think you'll live a life that is rich and is satisfying, and I think you'll live a life that is truly awesome.
