“To choose or not to choose…”
The older we get, the more we realize that the choice to be happy or unhappy is our own. Sure, there will be times where things don’t go our way. We’ll feel unhappiness, sorrow, even depression. But, our agency determines how we cope with these challenges.
This doesn’t mean that we should feel guilty about being sad or depressed. Everyone experiences “down” days. Melancholy moments can bring great wisdom if we think them through.
But, the truth is that you always have a choice. You can choose to stay stuck in unhappiness and resentment, or, choose to let go and feel fulfillment lighten your load.
If you’re unhappy, unsatisfied or merely ambiguous, make today the day you put it all behind you. Choose to feel the joy in your life again.
You always have a choice. Why not make it great?
