Life will always have its challenges, but we have to learn to balance the good with the bad. The cliche of "all work and no play" is one to pay attention to as we can overwhelm ourselves with negatives and not appreciating any positives. There are many good things around us happening every minute, every hour, every day, etc. we just have to switch our focus which in many instances means changing what we consume mentally which adjusts our patterns of thought. Learning to laugh at life is healthy even if you have to laugh at yourself . Life is serious, it's not that serious, have fun with life.
