The sun sets on another day…
Each day we make a choice to be happy or not so happy, or of course a pain in the bottom. Each day we make the decision. One more time, each day WE make the decision. There is no one in the world that can truly make you happy, on the other hand, there is no one in the world that can truly make you unhappy. You give each person the power to affect you, one way or another. It is imperative that each person on the face of this planet somehow understand that no matter how bad things are, you can be a positive person, and by the same token, no matter how good things are you can still be unhappy.
This is a personal choice. We can create situations that make you unhappier, or happier, but nothing can truly set the tone or take over our lives but us.
I once knew a woman that had nothing, (and I mean nothing) but she was one of the happiest people I ever met. At church she was always positive and volunteered, tithed (even though she never had money) and made the world a better place by being in it. She defined herself daily by who she wanted to be, and when people put her down she shrugged it off like an elephant would a mosquito. I heard someone ask her how poor she was once, and she said simply, “She was rich in life.”
I also have known several people who were well off, and had everything that most people dream of, and are the most miserable people you could meet. One man in particular I know has a beautiful house, wonderful children, an amazing wife, and more money in the bank than most. Is he happy? Absolutely not. He continuously looks like the world is coming to an end, and lives his life without interacting with anyone.
Eeek, I seem to have rattled on.
My point of today, is don’t sweat the petty things, or pet the sweaty things and don’t let others define who you are, instead make every day that day that will be closer to the happiness you deserve (and it is a lot!). Define who you are each day, and as you do, make every day a lesson in happiness.
Sleep sweet, love life, and wish on the farthest star and love your way to it…
