I think that your journey is nothing if not your attitude . Each one of us experiences ups , downs , joys , sorrows , fears , moments of ecstasy and moments of utter dejection or confusion .Yet every one is different . Hence its your reaction that is governed by your general attitude towards life is what makes these distinctions between people .
Recently I had a conversation with a friend wherein I told him I thought he was "good at life " . He asked me how I could say that when he thought he had a very mediocre life (relatively speaking ) . My answer to him was the same . I admire how he perceives everything and approaches the smallest to the biggest things with enthusiasm and positivity . I believe I could have much more but when we both die he will be much happier and feel that he has led a full life , all because of how he looks at things .Your personal journey can be as fruitful , exciting and worthwhile as your perception of things . A defeated attitude means that one has lost even before one has started .
