On The Choices We Make...

If you want to be happy.... BE!

Life is filled with surprises. Yes, we live in an imperfect world populated with imperfect people (ourselves included). But at the end of the day, it is what we feel and think inside our hearts that really matters.

Happiness is a state of mind. The traffic may be jammed, the deadline might be short, the critics may be so annoying, the bills so overwhelming, the gossip about you - so not true! ... Now, it is a choice to either react in the situation... or respond.

I know it is not a bed of roses. Indeed life can be tough at times. And yet, the whole point of living is not about suffering and enduring the pain. Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass ... it is about learning to dance in the rain.

So now go and make your choice... React? Or respond?... To be? Or not to be? However way you choose - it is still your choice.

Now be careful, because one choice leads to another. The choices we make today could either be a consequence or a fruit that awaits us tomorrow.
