It’s not what happens to you that makes you a victim or makes you feel happy. It is what you think about what happens that does that to you. How you interpret the events in your life determines whether you’re happy or miserable.
It’s entirely up to you to decide that life is tough and you’re one of the unfortunate ones .. or .. to decide that life is filled with all kinds of things that are good and beautiful and you plan to enjoy your share.
Choose to see the beauty in the ashes. Why? For your mental and emotional health.
Choose to promote joy instead of mourning. Why? For your spiritual and physical well-being.
Choose to praise rather than condemn. Why? For your family’s sake (they’ve got to live with you).
It’s never too late to be happy. It’s never too late to offer others the healing balm of good cheer. The degree to which you are happy or miserable is self-determined. Taking your power back and experiencing an extraordinary life; casting yourself in the role of victim by wailing out “WOE is me;” it’s your choice; what shall it be?
