One of the main differences that I've noticed between happy people and negative people is not in the number of bad circumstances they have but in the choices that they make. Circumstances do not define us; our attitudes define us. When a negative circumstance occurs, I can either feel badly about it, or I can figure out how to change it. It's a choice, and in some situations, it is the only true control we have.
Each morning, we have a choice -- Good day or bad day. It's not what's going to happen that day that will make it good or bad, but how we react to those circumstances. I am learning that this is not always easy to remember, but, boy, does it make a difference!
What choice did you make today?
