Believe That Life Will Surpass Your Expectations

 "Life Generally Turns Out Better Than You'd Predict"

"The passage of time provides us with a sunnier outlook on our past: 45% of adults 75 and older say life has surpassed their expectations, according to the Pew study"

-from an article by Carrie Arnold, published in the January 2012 issue of Self magazine

  1. Thats an interesting survey to think about. Im surprised only 45 percent think that though. I wish it was a higher number. I've always loved the happy flowchart. I think it's up to you to make sure you are happy and that flowchart is a simple test to tell.

  2. I wish it was higher too! But I also remembered that they didn't ask who was happy with their lives or who had no regrets, etc (which would prob be a much higher number) they asked whose lives had surpassed that! And almost half said it had, which is pretty cool. Hopefully our generation's percentage will be even higher tho

  3. I love the "Are You Happy" pic. It's absolutely right.
