Some days are better written off as wasted. However, such would not be dealing with reality. Being real means acknowledging that life has ups and downs, some days will be on the down side while others are on the up up side. But you need to go on for the down days, they are not to be written off as everything that happens has a lesson in it. Though the day may bring sadness, you need to get down and reflect, in the process retract those life lessons that are in it. One then could realise that in fact such days make them a stronger person, it builds their character.
The up up days are the glorious days, those days where one feels time should be suspended so that the moment being lived does not end, pass by to be in the past. Some say happiness is a choice in the state of mind, which suggests that you can choose to be continuously joyous. I am sure you have met such people with joy all-over-them who seem to live in a different world which sees no sorrow where there is grief. Our attitude to life, the choices we make can make us live that life of never ending happiness. A positive outlook to life with faith that is impregnated with eternal love in everything one does, is an insurance to happy life.

RICHES WITHIN YOUR REACH – DISCOVER FOR YOURSELF THE ASTONISHING AND SIMPLE KEYS TO SUCCESS – AND PUT THEM IN ACTION TODAY by Robert Collier
“The declaration of independence starts with the preamble that all men are born free and equal.——–, these two are born equal, for they have equal access to the God in themselves, equal chance to give Him means of expression. More than that, the God in one is just as powerful as the God in other, for they both are part of that all-powerful God of the universe who rules the world.”
“And the greatest of these is Persistence. Many a man has succeeded without education. Many even without good judgement. But none has ever got anywhere worth while without persistence. Without a strong desire, without that inner urge which pushes him on, over obstacles, through discouragements, to the goal of his heart’s desire.”
“Mind is the Master-power that moulds and makes, — And Man is Mind, and evermore he takes– The tool of thoughts, and, shaping what he wills, —– Brings forth a thousand joys, a thousand ills:—– He thinks in secret, and it comes to pass: —- Environment is but his looking glass. …….. JAMES ALLEN.”
“And every morning I will say, There’s something happy on the way. And God sends love to me. God is the light of my life, the source of my knowledge and inspiration. God in the midst of me knows. He provides me with food for my thoughts, ideas for excellent service, clear perception, Divine intelligence.”
