A child's version of happiness

Guest Author - Amy Packham

Isn't this just the cutest quote ever? Okay well it seems a lot cuter when you realize it is spoken by a five year old boy:

"people have to cry out all the tears to make room for a heart full of smiles."

So it is about happiness, even though it is talking about tears. I think I liked it so much because it shows how a child has been taught the ways of being happy from a very young age. They will have been told this and it shows they are representing it through telling other people. People have to cry... this is teaching children to learn that it is okay to be sad and to be upset, this will always happen in life and not everything is going to be positive. But going through these tough times will bring out the smiles and the happiness, we need the bad to be able to experience the good.

Now I'm sure the child didn't know this all at the time of saying it, but I thought I would find another quote which is more adult-like:

What doesn't kill us makes us stronger.
Friedrich Nietzsche
9


No it isn't just the lyrics of Kelly Clarkson's song but it is a quote - by a man I'm sure not many of us will recognize. It's all very well to say this but we all know that when it happens, and we are down in the dumps, the 'lowest of the low' the last thing we are thinking is that it is going to make us stronger in the long run. That's why I feel this quote only really applies to people when they have got through the tough times and realized it can be dealt with. By this time they know they can get through it and it might, in some way, prepare them for the next bad thing. Because lets face it, life is a string of good and bad, positive and negative, love and hate and we never know what it is going to throw at us, we just know we have to deal with it when it comes. And if that be happiness then we need to be grateful and if it isn't we need to know we can get through it.

Quite an emotional article which wasn't intended, from a cute quote from a child to a deep discussion on life... this always happens! x
