Friday, finally. This has been such an exhausting week in general. It was a challenge juggling a crazy schedule, dealing with the unpredictable weather, and just being surrounded with so much negativity. Right now, I'm looking forward to a weekend of detoxifying from all the bad vibes and being appreciative of all the good things. Because when it comes to dealing with problems and challenges, you only lose when you don't choose to fight.
There's always going to be an obstacle waiting for you because that's simply how life rolls. However, how you react when these situations come is in your control. Choose happiness, they say, and I absolutely agree.
Happiness is a choice and it is a conscious decision you make everyday. This does not necessarily mean you have to fake it. What it is telling you is that you need to decide for yourself that you will accept the bad but look at the good. Recognize the problem, but create an action plan immediately. And, as one of my favorite lines puts it, realize the strength and move on.
When you start being more aware of how you react to problems and decide that you'll get more out of looking at what you can do and staying positive rather than sulking, then you'll be much more motivated to move onwards and upwards.
It's all about deciding on what kind of situation you want to put yourself in. ;)
“For every minute you are angry you lose sixty seconds of happiness.” ― Ralph Waldo Emerson
