‘Most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be.’
– Abraham Lincoln
It’s cliche’ to say, but I really believe it’s true. You can choose joy. I was having a discussion with a person the other day about how negative she was. Then we talked about how any event that happens is not positive or negative it just is. YOU assign the meaning to that event. You decide whether it’s positive or negative and by doing that you can decide your response to the situation.
You see, you can’t control external factors, but you can control your response to those factors, and that makes all the difference.
So are you going to choose joy today?
