Are you happy with your life? Apparently those with Down Syndrome are: this one study showed that 99% of those with Down Syndrome consider themselves to be happy with their life regardless of intellectual ability, medical issues, or anything else going on. Amazing, right?
Now I don't mean to say that I'm amazed that they are happy, but rather I am amazed that the percentage is so high when only 80% of typical adults consider themselves happy with their lives. (See Gallup Poll ) Perhaps it is the sunny attitude of people with Trisomy 21, the love of simple pleasures, or the mere appreciation of the positive things they see around them. Either way, we should all have this kind of outlook and focus on the amazing things we have all been given, for which we should constantly be praising God!
