Do you know how when you are putting on your coat, or a jacket or pair of pants, and you just happen to put your hand in your pocket and then your fingers start tingling because you have just discovered that YOU HAVE MONEY IN YOUR POCKET?!
It doesn’t matter if it’s a dollar or a dime, there’s that initial – “I have just hit the jackpot” kind of feeling, Isn’t it? You are ready to do your Happy Dance! Well, that’s exactly how I felt when I finally realized – actually, remembered – that we have a choice.
That’s the real “secret.” We have a choice. We have a choice whether we’re going to we see life as negative or positive. We have a choice whether we live with despair or hope; with courage or fear; with disappointment or determination. We have a choice to be happy. Yes. It is our choice whether we live like a grouch and complain all of the time, or whether we appreciate and experience all of the wonderful things in the world.
Yes, it is simple. But no, it isn’t always easy. We just have to remember that there are at least 2 ways of looking at everything. And when we look on the positive side, we have that much more mental power. We are not letting the negative situation bring us down and totally consume us.
Regardless of your circumstances, know that if and when you look and discover the bright side, the better side, things will at least appear that much better. And that hope is the help we often need to get through those circumstances.
