I Choose To Be Happy

I Choose Happy
Nobody or thing can make you happy or sad. Only you can make yourself happy or sad. As Viktor E. Frankl rightly discovered, “Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of human freedoms - to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way.” 

Why then will you want to choose to be sad? You can be happy in any and every situation and circumstance if you so choose. The question is which works best for your furtherance. I understand in some situations we need to weep with those who weep. And, in other situations, we need to grieve to let go of the pain and clear our thoughts. 

Those are understandable. What is not understandable is when we lose our persons and are not able to think straight. What is not understandable is when we allow a situation to get the better of us. What is not understandable is when we allow our life to stagnate. It really does not matter what has happened. Your case is not the first of its kind. 

Many have gone before you and have made something good of the same situation. Don’t be deceived. Your case is not the worst. Open your eyes. There is a miracle hidden in your seeming “bad situation.” There is heaven hidden in your seeming “hell.” It is all in your mind. It is all within your control.

Rise up and live. Life is meant for living. Don’t let life have the better of you. You can make something beautiful out of any and every situation of life. Your happiness is in your hands, not another’s. The choice is yours to make. What are you doing with it?
