Laugh Often, Live Well, Love Much

Life is what we make it, always has been, always will be. – Grandma Moses

Let me ask you a question. Who decides whether you are happy or not? There is only one answer … You!

Your attitude, your happiness, your life is in your hands.

I caught one of Oprah’s shows last year where she was talking about a time in her life where someone made her really angry. She said she dwelled on that person, thought about that person and what they’d done. Her energy and time were consumed by her anger toward this person. Then one day she was out walking down the street and saw this person with some friends. They were laughing and looked like they were having the time of their life.
She realized in that moment that the only person her anger, bitterness and resentment were harming, was herself. She decided in that moment to let it go and move on.

We cannot change other people. We cannot control what other people do. The only thing we can control is ourselves and how we respond to what others say and do.

Do not go through life blaming others for your circumstances and attitude. Focus instead on your life, your goals and what you can do to be a better human being.

Each morning when you rise, you can decide whether to be happy. You can decide to live life to the fullest and see your glass as half-full. You can decide whether to love your fellow human beings. You can decide to be kind to others.

I hope you all will make the decision to laugh often, live well and love much.
