Happy as you make up your mind to be

You are in charge of your life. You are in charge of how you react to what happens to you.

Most people don’t want to face the reality. They prefer to complain and think that they had nothing to do with what happened. They like to put it on someone else shoulders. But doing that isn’t making them feel good. At first, letting someone else taking charge of their life feels like they came back to childhood. The feeling is good. But after a moment, it feels wrong. They know that they should be in charge. If they react like a child, how can they ever help a child? How can they even help themselves?

If you don’t take charge of your life, then you let someone else step in for you. How can they know what you want? How can they choose what is best for you? 

You are as happy as you choose to be.

« Most folks are as happy as they make up their minds to be.”
 - Abraham Lincoln
